Dr. Nicole Power (settler, she/her) is Professor in the Department of Sociology at Memorial University. Broadly, she conducts feminist research in the areas of work, health and safety, and mobility; and fisheries, rurality and place.
As co-investigator with the On the Move Partnership, Dr. Power researched the employment-related geographical mobility (E-RGM) of young skilled trades apprentices and high school and post-secondary students in Newfoundland and Labrador, as well as the relationship between social-ecological restructuring and E-RGM in fisheries since the early 1990s. She is also co-lead of the Newfoundland field component.
