Currently, my research fits into nine main categories:
- The social, climatic, environmental, and cultural determinants of physical, mental, and emotional health, with a focus on Indigenous health and well-being;
- The human dimensions of climatic and environmental change, particularly in a Circumpolar context;
- Individual, social, community, and health systems adaptation within the context of large-scale and rapid change;
- Community health and development, including cultural reclamation and revitalization;
- Fostering youth mental health and resilience to rapid change;
- Health equity and health justice;
- Human-environment relations and environmental ethics and praxis;
- Emotional, psychological, health geographies and place-based ways of knowing;
- Innovative qualitative methods and research design.
These areas are premised on the philosophical foundations of capacity development, community-based and community-led research, and interdisciplinary approaches, and interact with, and inform each other through the dynamic conversion of theory, research, and practice.
