I am an Assistant Professor at McMaster, where I teach in the Department of Religious Studies.

My ethnographic research focuses on communities and new religious movements seeking radical-longevity and immortality, as well as the historical and cultural framework of changing North American relationships to technology and death.

I have presented my research at the annual meeting of the American Anthropological Association (AAA), the American Academy of Religion (AAR), and the Society for the Anthropology of Religion (SAR), and have given numerous guest lectures on transhumanism, immortality, conspiracy theories, and the ethics of radical-longevity.
