Tiffany is a landscape architect and territorial scholar from Treaty 6 Territory in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Her research lies at the intersections of landscape, settler-colonial studies, ecology, history, and geography. She is interested in using decolonial approaches to subvert the dominant power structures and infrastructural networks shaping territory today.

Her core approach embraces alternate – often non-western, or non-patriarchal – knowledge systems as grounded methods for subverting dominant power structures and infrastructural networks shaping territory today. She received her MLA from the Graduate School of Design, Harvard University (2014 – 2017) and is currently a PhD student in the Department of Geography, University of Cambridge.

Among her other publications is “A Glacial Pace: Delineating the Contours of Colonization in Canada’s National Parks System,” in Extraction Empire: Undermining the Systems, States, and Scales of Canada’s Global Resource Empire edited by Pierre Belanger (MIT Press, 2018). Her professional experience includes work as landscape researcher, designer, project architect from 2015 to 2018 at the OPSYS Landscape Infrastructure Lab, Cambridge, MA, USA, and a 2014 position as landscape designer at Topotek 1 Landscape Architects, Berlin, Germany.
