I am currently the Undergraduate Advisor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Toronto, from where I received my Ph.D. in 2017. As the Undergraduate Advisor, I work with students to help them prepare for life after graduation.  During my doctorate, my research focused on human rights activists, rebel groups, and the transnational dynamics of civil war, as well as international relations theory.  Since then, I have shifted my focus to look more closely at public policy making in Canada, with a focus on privatization, the regulation of wireless technologies and sunlight exposure guidelines.  I have also worked in advocacy, serving as the Executive Director of Every Kid Counts, a grassroots campaign to improve educational supports for children with disabilities in Ontario.
