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 the Research Cluster on Comparative Inequality and Inclusion with the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs at Harvard University. Previously, I held a Fulbright Canada Award with the Takemi Program in International Health at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
I specialize in comparative politics, public policy, and development. I have two broad research interests. First, I am interested in the state provision of social welfare, with a focus on pro-poor health policies for women and children. Second, I look at the influence of international factors on social welfare in Southeast Asia.
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). Currently, I am a Co-Investigator on a SickKids (Hospital for Sick Children) Centre for Global Child Health Catalyst Grant.
