Writing

I write poems, essays, op-eds, & articles for a variety of readers.

Topics of focus include health+ climate justice, gender, sexuality, kinship + caregiving, environmental science and technology, race, and settler-colonialism. One of the primary reasons for including older writings is to showcase growth, shifts in ideas, and that writing is indeed a lifelong practice.

Academic Writing

As a spatial sociologist in-training, I'm focused on mapping and writing about environmental science and technology, race, critical sovereignty and solidarity, and the dynamics of settler-colonialism for island nations. Research work published prior to starting a PhD focus on a range of topics including race, mental health, sexuality, and heath disparities.

“In what ways does Indigenous social justice work differ from other kinds of social justice work? And what are some of the complications in building solidarity between social movements that focus on a diversity of issues?”
