I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Sociology at the University of Alberta. I am under the supervision of Dr. Stephen A. Kent. My research is interdisciplinary by nature, but I consider myself more of a sociologist than anything else. My research lies at the intersection of sociology of religion and social movement studies. I am primarily interested in understanding non-religion in various social contexts and aspects of secularist identity construction. Although my primary focus has been secularist activism, I am also interested in New Age, Neopagan, and New Religious Movements.
