Research Interests

My research focuses on the colonial legacy of toxic contamination from
military bases in Labrador, how this waste has impacted the area’s
history and heritage, and the role archaeology plays in understanding
the history of industrial contamination on Indigenous lands. Landscape
theory and community archaeology with local Indigenous knowledge and analytical chemistry will be used to analyze the continuing colonial
legacy of Northern contamination.
