Research information:

I have a PhD. In the History of Education. My topics of study are the history of sex education, contraception and abortion in Canada. I use a feminist translational approach that connects the local to the global. I am currently working on a history of the birth control pill in Canada between 1960-1980 and its impact on young, single, university women. I also am researching "abortion tourism" or, the travel women undertake to access abortion services at clinics within Canada.

I am interested in examining how global processes—intersecting with gender, ethnicity, migration status and other social identifiers—are implicated in health and well-being. At present, my program of research examines the impact of shifts in the global economy on the social and economic well-being of different groups of immigrants, migrants, and refugees and their families.
