Hi, I'm Shanaya
I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Political Science at Western University. My research interests include Canadian politics, urban and local politics and public policy. My dissertation examines how parties, ideology and representation shape provincial policy agendas over time. This project is supported by a SSHRC Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship.
In July 2020, I became the Book Review and Social Media Assistant for the new English-language editorial team of the Canadian Journal of Political Science/ Revue canadienne de science politique.
I have experience as a teaching assistant for courses in the areas of public policy and administration and introduction to politics.
I encourage you to use the links below (or at the top of this page) to read more about my research, including some recent publications and teaching experience.
