I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science and the Institute of Development Studies at the University of Guelph (U of G). I am also a member of Harvard University's Research Cluster on Comparative Inequality and Inclusion at the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs and an affiliate with the Hospital for Sick Children's (SickKids) Centre for Global Child Health. Previously, I held a Fulbright Canada Award at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health with the Takemi Program in International Health.
I specialize in comparative politics, public policy, and health. I have two broad research interests. First, I am interested in the public provision of social welfare, with a focus on health policies for marginalized groups. Second, I look at the influence of international factors on social welfare in Southeast Asia.
I hold a PhD in Political Science from the University of Toronto and a MSc in International Public Policy from University College London. My work has been supported by grants and fellowships from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW), International Development Research Centre (IDRC), Ontario government, and the Southeast Asia Research Group (SEAREG).
