My work builds on growing fields of research on the role of science and technology in histories of dispossession and in the ongoing colonization of indigenous people. My research explores contemporary and historic biomedical and public health practices at moments when (settler) colonial dynamics are made visible through the racialization of individuals and collectives. I bring together geographies of health & health inequalities, Native American and Indigenous Studies, & science studies.
