I am a doctoral student in the Department of Sociology, at the University of Calgary.

My research interests include the cultural study of law, family and kinship, theories of identity, intersectionality, and phenomenology.

My current doctoral project, funded by the Joseph-Armand Bombardier CGS Doctoral Scholarship, examines the increasing prevalence of multiple-partner families and its intersections with legal, political, and economic structures.

I received my M.A. in Social and Cultural Anthropology at the University of Toronto in 2017. My capstone project focused on the experiences of Queer Muslim Refugees in Canada’s Asylum Apparatus.
