Geography and Methods
Thematic Research Area
My research explores humans in daily occupation and activities, that is, occupations beyond paid employments and all activities that occupy an individual’s time. Using approaches informed by occupational science, qualitative methodologies, and critical social theory, my research focuses on the occupational implications of international migration to Canada and the experiences of immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers. My research examines individuals at the local scale in relation to social inclusion and I have also analyzed the integration of French-speaking immigrants in Francophone minority communities in Canada.
