Areas of interest
I am a PhD student in Anthropology at Carleton University. I take an economic anthropology approach to my research and explore the importance of Indigenous women’s textile arts and the tourism industry in the Canadian Subarctic. I have worked in the Arctic and Subarctic for the past seven years and my previous experience is in museum research.
My approach draws on my work as a collaborative researcher. I intend to take my experiences and foster a learning environment that encourages open dialogue, learning, and listening. I am committed to creating an inclusive environment that supports collaborative learning.
