I came to the University of Alberta from my homeland, Aotearoa New Zealand, in 2004.
Prior to that I taught Graduate Studies at Te Whare Wananga o Awanuiarangi and also taught at the University of Auckland from where I received my PhD. Currently I am a Professor, Indigenous, Environmental and Global Studies, teaching in the Theory, Culture & International Specialization in the Department.
My interests include: human and ecological interrelationships, Indigenous ways of being and knowing, Indigenous feminisms, planetary stewardship, global transformations, and possible futures.
Taught courses include: Indigenous ontologies and global transformation, sociology of education, international education and development, Indigenous education and philosophy of education.
