Background

BA (Ottawa), MA (Carleton), MA (Cornell), PhD (Cornell)

My research highlights the ecological and political-economic risks of fossil fuel dependence while advancing new policy measures to wind down fossil fuel extraction and production. Working alongside a community of scholars and policy advocates, I aim to reimagine Canadian and international climate policy.
