ASSISTED REPRODUCTIVE TECHNOLOGIES
For the last decade, my main research agenda concerned assisted reproduction policy. My 2018 book, Assisted Reproduction in Canada: Framing, Federalism, and Failure, is a case study of the Canadian experience. It traces the development of Canadian assisted reproductive technology policy from the 1993 Royal Commission on New Reproductive Technologies to the Supreme Court of Canada’s 2010 decision that struck down much of Canada’s assisted reproduction policy, and examines the implications of this history for policy today.

GOVERNANCE OF NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE
I am currently beginning of a longer-term project that seeks to understand how naturopathic medicine is governed in the Canadian provinces. This project seeks to incorporate naturopathic medicine into the literature on self-regulation professions, and to understand the reasons that provinces have adopted different regulatory frameworks to govern this growing field. In 2018, I was awarded a SSHRC Insight Development Grant for this project.
