I am broadly interested in the history of postwar Canada and the history of science and technology. My dissertation, supervised by Karen Dubinsky, explores the history of border-crossing space exploration in Canada with an eye to the multiple forms of international engagement and cultural meanings at play. My previous work examined the history of queer activism and memory in Toronto.
