My main areas of scholarship and research focus on the experiences of immigrants and refugees in Canada, at both the individual and community level; social policy as knowledge production and its effects on the lived experiences of individuals and groups; critical multiculturalism and critical refugee studies; and, social change through community action and engaged scholarship.
My approach to research is to seek out and promote marginalized voices and knowledge in collaborative partnerships with communities, and to reveal and disrupt the operations of structural power and oppression in discourse, practices, and policies.
