I am interested in practices of 'decoloniality' in Aotearoa. This includes understanding the ways in which coloniality reproduces and sustains itself and maintains the interests of dominant groups in society and how we might subvert those processes. To this end, one part of my research project includes using Maori epistemologies (and the philosophical insights that we can draw from these) to critique dominant narratives about Maori (and perhaps "others") and create new pathways forward that transcend the binaries of Europeans and natives, Maori and Pakeha, the oppressor and the oppressed.
