I engage in research that is collaborative, grounded in Indigenous ways of knowing and address needs identified by Indigenous peoples, communities and nations.
I implement a community-centered approach to training and learning that I learned from my experiences with and teachings from Anishinaabe knowledge holders. This approach is relational and takes into account learner responsibilities in addition to their needs.
I often have research assistantships available related to my currently funded research projects. These opportunities are open to all students however Indigenous students who are from the Traditional territory in which the research is taking place will be given priority.
I will assess requests for supervision on a case by case basis. If you are an Indigenous student you have a right to an Indigenous supervisor, so I will try my best to accommodate your request. If you are requesting that I be your supervisor or a committee member please send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) outlining why you think you are the right person to carry out your proposed project, how your proposed project meaningfully includes Indigenous peoples and how it will provide tangible benefits to Indigenous peoples, communities or nations.
