I am Professor of Geography at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada. I am a geographer, with a general interest in law, and a particular interest in property in land. I have traced the work of property in many conflicts and social relations, including gentrification, urban gardening, the municipal regulation of panhandling and indigenous-state treaties.  

I am currently engaged in team-based research on the use of ‘area restrictions’ included in bail and sentencing conditions imposed in the context of criminal proceedings involving marginalized groups of people. I am also part of a large collaborative project exploring the liquidation of Japanese-Canadian property after WWII.  

Please contact me for more information on my research and teaching, or for graduate research opportunities.
