Research and Professional Interests
My research will consider accessibility of public toilet spaces in North America through a critical disability studies lens. I will explore how (lack of) provision of public washrooms designed to accommodate the specific toileting needs of people with severe and/or prolonged disabilities intersects with planning practice re inclusive/universal design in the built environment and governmental legislation. The purpose of my research is to counter the critical lack of planning and policy-making with regards to public toilet provision in North American cities, particularly for people with disabilities.
