I’m currently the NBHRF Research Chair in Community Health and Aging and Assistant Professor of Gerontology at St. Thomas University in Canada. My research has sought to challenge the social imaginary of mastery that orients conventional approaches to health. With the aim of contributing to a more compassionate, equitable and sustainable society, my current research explores alternatives. I am study, on the one hand, the logic of care and its application to nursing homes and, on the other hand, contemplative philosophies and the unique relationships they enable to living and dying. I’m particularly interested in the intersections between critical health and environmentalism, as they share common struggles to find ways of living well within limits.
