She is an environmental geographer interested in nature-society relations, postcolonial studies, environmental and social justice, and the intersection between water governance and the politics of scale.
Dr. Norman was just named a Research Fellow with the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian.
This summer, she was a Whiteley Scholar in residence at the University of Washington's Friday Harbor Labs, where she completed her thrid manuscript, Governing Transboundary Waters: Canada, the United States, and Indigenous Communities (Routledge).
"Water Without Borders offers important lessons for managing water across one of the longest political borders in the world: Canada – U.S. frontier. This book shows how the increased participation by citizen activists and watershed groups is improving water governance. Water Without Borders is a must read for anyone interested in protecting shared waterways and fortifying strong communities for the 21st Century."

CNH: Managing Impacts of Global Transport of Atmosphere-Surface Exchangeable Pollutants in the Context of Global Change
This project helps to understand how we can better manage pollutants that travel long distances in the atmosphere and cause harm to humans and ecosystems. We aim to understand the mechanisms in place to govern these “invisible” and widespread extraterritorial pollutants, and to make recommendations on how to better mediate their negative impacts.
