Welcome! I am a PhD candidate in Political Science at the University of Toronto. I am also a research associate at the Munk School’s Environmental Governance Lab and a research fellow with the Earth System Governance Project. I live and work on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishnawbe and Haudenosaunee peoples.
My research investigates how civil society actors interact with state and non-state actors in key areas of our political economy like energy, climate change and trade. In my doctoral research — supervised by Dr. Steven Bernstein and Dr. Kate Neville — I explain why, in the several years, major transboundary oil sands pipelines have not been built. This research is supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Joseph-Armand Bombardier CGS Doctoral Scholarship and the Ontario Graduate Scholarship.
My research interests more generally include global energy politics, international political economy, and international trade and investment.
