Prior to coming to York Jessica was a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Criminology at Wilfrid Laurier University. There she explored the criminalization of homelessness in B.C. and more specifically the socio-legal processes managing encampments and the use of public space by unhoused people. She is currently working on another related collaborative project that investigates how different groups of people in mid-sized cities perceive homelessness, use of space, public safety, and community integration. She has published her work in Critical Sociology; The Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare; Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society; The Canadian Journal of Public Health; PLOS One, and Social Science & Medicine.
