I have academic experience in mixed methods research in multiple fields including political science, education, mental heath, medical anthropology, psychology, and medicine. I am particularly passionate about supporting community-based/participatory research in the areas of mental health and education while integrating Indigenous and decolonizing research methodologies. I am guided by the four R's where research is based on respect, relevance, reciprocity, and responsibility (Virkness & Barnhardt, 1991).
