Welcome!

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.  The working title for my dissertation is "The Partisan Construction of Policy Agendas: Party competition and policy attention in English Canadian provinces 1945-2020". My dissertation examines how parties and party system dynamics shape provincial policy agendas over time. This project is supported by a SSHRC Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship.

I recently joined Western's Centre for Urban Policy and Local Governance as a graduate fellow. I am also the Book Review and Social Media Assistant for the 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.
