Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science and a faculty affiliate with the Institute of Development Studies and One Health Institute at the University of Guelph. I hold a PhD in Political Science from the University of Toronto and a MSc in International Public Policy from University College London.
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 at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health with the Takemi Program in International Health.
My research and teaching interests are in comparative politics and public policy, with a focus on health politics and policy. I am especially interested in the political conditions that facilitate the expansion of policies which reduce health disparities.
My work has been published in the American Political Science Review and The Lancet, as well as public outlets including The Washington Post and Stanford Social Innovation Review. My research has been supported by grants and fellowships from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), Canadian Federation of University Women, International Development Research Centre (IDRC), Ontario government, and the Southeast Asia Research Group (SEAREG).
