I'm an educator, instructional designer, researcher, and filmmaker.

I'm currently a SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of History at the University of Western Ontario. I earned my PhD in 2019 from Trent University. I work on "cranks", UFOs, conspiracy theory, and the history of science in Cold War Canada.

My doctoral research was featured in 2018 on CBC Radio's Ideas. You can listen to the hour-long show here.

I've made over a dozen films, both fiction and documentary, including my feature length doc Pushback.
