She is Principal Investigator on a project, supported by an Insight Development Grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) of Canada and co-investigator on a history of Medical Diasporas in Canada. With Dr. Wright, she is producing a book that examines the transnational history of physician migration in the second half of the twentieth century, looking 'outward' from Canada.
