Research Information:

I am a political scientist who is interested in health politics and health policy. I have specific interests in how citizens can affect health policy issues. I am especially interested in illnesses that affect marginalized communities, such as HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis C. I am currently completing a SSHRC-funded project on “contested illnesses”, including autism and Multiple Chemical Sensitivities. My non-health related interests include methods of citizen engagement and citizen participation, the role of the voluntary sector, and the influence of interest groups and social movements.
