I am a PhD Candidate at the University of Toronto in the Department of Political Science. Currently I hold a Fulbright Canada Award at Harvard University, where I am an Associate with the Takemi Program in International Health in the Department of Global Health and Population. I research the politics of social welfare provision, with a focus on maternal and child nutrition in Southeast Asia.
At the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) Centre for Global Child Health, I am a Co-Investigator on the 2017-18 Catalyst Grant on the effect of national nutrition policies on health disparities. At the Munk School of Global Affairs, I am a Doctoral Fellow with the Asian Institute. I also held the 2016-17 Health and Human Rights Senior Doctoral Fellowship with the Comparative Program on Health and Society.
My research is supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Council of Canada Doctoral Fellowship, Ontario Graduate Scholarship, Vivienne Poy Chancellor's Fellowship in the Social Sciences and Humanities, and Canadian Federation of University Women Fellowship, among others. My doctoral fieldwork, conducted in Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, the Philippines, and Thailand, has been supported by the International Development Research Centre Doctoral Award, David Chu Scholarship in Asia Pacific Studies, and University of Toronto travel grants.
