Canada Research Chair in Historical Geographies of Nature (2003-2012)

I grew up in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia. My degrees in history (BA - 1989; MA - 1994) are from the University of British Columbia where I became fascinated with the relations between stories and places. A Commonwealth Scholarship allowed me to follow my interests in environmental history over to historical geography at the University of Cambridge in England. I received my Ph.D. from the Cambridge Department of Geography in 2001. I was Junior Research Fellow in Historical Geography at Churchill College, Cambridge (1999-2002) and arrived in Kingston with my partner and son to experience my first Ontario winter, January 2003. Since then, we have enjoyed the lakes in every season and the creative communities which enliven the University and our neck of the woods near Skeleton Park.
