I am a PhD Candidate at the University of Toronto, Department of Geography and Planning. Broadly, my research engages with the politics of belonging and identity using qualitative observational research, such as ethnography and narrative inquiry. As a ‘critical’ geographer I analyze how spaces are produced, negotiated, and contested by examining the power dynamic between individuals and social/cultural systems, especially as they are transforming through technology.

My commitment to equity and social justice have driven my research on e-learning and activism toward improving public education. I am endlessly curious and, for this reason, pursue a diverse range of projects that explore theories of affect and difference, the result of which expand the boundaries of ‘proper’ disciplines.
