Prospective Graduate Students

I am interested in supervising graduate students working on a wide range of research topics. However, I am particularly interested in self-motivated students with the following research interests or expertise:

  • Food policy and equity issues in international organizations
  • Gender and global governance
  • Gender-sensitive food and agricultural initiatives
  • Gender issues in representation and decision-making
  • Gender issues in resource or environmental management

Prospective Masters and PhD students should have a strong academic standing (minimum A- average or equivalent), with an academic background in environmental studies, political science, gender studies, international studies, development studies or similar fields, or equivalent professional expertise. Students should have a strong social sciences background and demonstrate interest in developing their own research project.

Prospective students may consider applying to either Social and Ecological Sustainability (MA or PhD) at the University of Waterloo, or Global Governance (MA or PhD) at the Balsillie School of International Affairs. Please review the different requirements of these programs, though I am happy to discuss these programs to ensure you find the right fit for your interests and goals.
