I use qualitative and textual methods to investigate identity and change. I am interested in how new roles and integration of new vocabularies change professionals' perceptions of identity. I currently study how Nova Scotian professionals accommodate medical assistance in dying. Our multi-university collaboration examines leaders’ sustainability communication and rhetoric.
