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 July 2018, I will join the University of Guelph as an Assistant Professor in Political Science and International Development Studies.
I research the politics of social welfare, with a focus on the state provision of primary healthcare. My book project looks at the impact of a nonbinding United Nations agreement on pro-poor policies for maternal and child nutrition in Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, and the Philippines.
My work has been supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Council of Canada (SSHRC), Canadian Federation of University Women, International Development Research Centre (IDRC), and Ontario government. At the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) Centre for Global Child Health, I am a Co-Investigator on a Catalyst Grant. At the Munk School of Global Affairs, I held the Health and Human Rights fellowship with the Comparative Program on Health and Society.
