She completed a SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Manitoba, a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Toronto, and a PhD on Indigenous literatures in Quebec at the University of Toronto. Working at the intersection of Indigenous literary studies and environmental humanities, her current research examines narrative and visual art by Indigenous creators from communities in Manitoba and Quebec who document, contest and reimagine the implications of resource extraction projects in general, and hydropower in particular.
