I grew up on traditional Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee lands near Kingston, Ontario Canada, and was educated and taught at Queen's University (Canada), the University of Toronto, and the University of Cambridge, where I held a postdoctoral fellowship from 2004 to 2006. Elected as a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society in 2008, I am a life member of Wolfson College, Cambridge and held visiting appointments in Canada, the United States and in the UK. My work has been supported by grants and fellowships from the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the British Academy, and the Leverhulme Trust. With my colleague Joy Porter, I am a Co-Principal Investigator of the University-funded research cluster Treatied Spaces: Environment & Peoples in America, 1607-1890.
