My research primarily focuses on Native-newcomer relations in Western Canada, with a particular emphasis on the law, environment and economy. Currently I am working on two research projects. The first consists of turning my dissertation on the impacts of the W.A.C. Bennett Dam on the Tsek'ehne into a book, while the second examines the numerous failed developments in the Finlay-Parsnip watershed.on northern British Columbia during the early twentieth-century. I am also working on publishing an English translation of Einar Odd Mortensen's book Pelshandleren with Dr. Ingrid Urberg.
