I am an ecological economist interested in the political economy of extraction, energy transition, and sociotechincal futures.


As a Postdoctoral Fellow with the Accelerating Community Energy Transformation (ACET) initiative and the Institute for Integrated Energy Systems (IESVic) at the University of Victoria, my research works to better understand perceptions of energy transitions and desirable energy futures within rural and medium-sized communities in Western Canada. 

I am on the board of the Canadian Society for Ecological Economics, a member of the Leadership for the Ecozoic Project, and an organizer in the North American degrowth movement. 

Originally from the northern prairies of Canada, I now find home in Burlington, Vermont. You can find me here hunting/crafting/performing among other forms of general merrymaking.
