An award winning researcher and creative writer whose work focuses broadly on marginalized peoples and geographies, Sarah de Leeuw grew up and has spent most of her life in Northern British Columbia, including Haida Gwaii and Terrace.

She is the Research Director of the Health Arts Research Centre and teaches in the areas of Indigenous peoples well-being and health humanities

Her research sits at the crossroads of social-cultural geography, health-humanities, social determinants of health, and anti-colonial method/ologies. She is interested in why some peoples and communities have better lives than others, why other peoples and communities live with burdens of poverty, isolation, violence, discrimination, racism, sexism, or poor health.
