Adjunct Assistant Professor
Film and Media

I completed my PhD at York University and did postdoctoral work at McGill University. I held a visiting position at the University of Bonn before joining the Department of Film and Media at Queen's. My research is focused on urban film cultures, the emergence of event cinema, and the intersections of film and performance in 'live cinema'. I have a continued interest in Canadian film industry and policy, and in the transnational dimensions of Canadian film, including the place of auteurs, co-productions, and festivals in the national film culture. My current book project brings together geography and film theory in order to investigate how contemporary filmmakers and artists have responded to the forces of globalization and localization.
