Scholarly Interests

Michael's research centers on power dynamics related to race and ethnicity in Canadian education and the private and public sectors of the labor market. Framing Canada as a white settler colonial state, he investigates the operation of white dominance in education and the labor market, emphasizing its impact on Black, Indigenous, and other racialized communities. His work delves into issues such as access to opportunities, the validity of credentials, qualifications, earnings gaps, and mobility within workplaces and educational institutions. Through this research, Michael aims to contribute valuable insights to inform public policy and address inequality in the Canadian labor market and education.
