My research is informed by critical theory, particularly Black and Chicana feminisms and Postcolonial theory. My research interests are in the following areas:
- Inequities in stroke care and healthcare service delivery
- Stroke survivorship
- Black nurses history
Inequities in stroke care & healthcare service delivery / stroke survivorship
- Towards equitable stroke care: learning from young women’s experiences: My current Ph.D. research explores young women stroke survivors’ experiences accessing stroke care in British Columbia with an equity lens to provide practice, research and policy recommendations.
Black nurses history
- Black Nurses
(in)visibility in British Columbia, 1845 to 1940: Using historical methods, I explored the history of Black nurses in British Columbia between 1845 and 1940. I argued that Black women performed vital work as caregivers, leaders and activists within Black and non-Black communities in colonial British Columbia between 1845 and 1900 and disrupted the conceptualization of womanhood in the Victorian era.
