Specializing in the areas of intersectionality and ethics in health work; health and race; transnational Indigenous health; and anti-oppression/anti-colonial approaches to mental health, Dr. Timothy has extensive teaching experience in universities, colleges, and in social service organizations and community settings, with particular expertise in critical health theory and social justice health policy development and implementation.
Dr. Timothy prioritizes critical and creative approaches to knowledge production that reflect experiences and aspirations of migrant, refugee, African/Black diasporic, and transnational Indigenous communities. Her scholarship contributes to critical race theory by examining how factors such as gender, class, sexual orientation, gender identities, (dis)abilities, transgenerational connections, and historical and contemporary intersectional violence impact African/Black communities’ health. Dr. Timothy centers community resistance through innovative decolonizing health practices.
