I am a PhD Candidate at the University of Toronto, Department of Geography and Planning. Broadly, my research engages with the politics of belonging using qualitative observational research, such as ethnography and narrative inquiry. As a geographer, I “think space relationally,” and use it as an analytic anchor to examine the complex interaction between individuals and social/cultural systems online and offline. My interests in equity and social justice have grounded the trajectory of my work and my activism, toward improving public education. Each project I have pursued throughout my academic history has contributed to an intellectual breadth, across which I bridge and expand the boundaries of ‘proper’ disciplines.
