I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Political Science at the University of British Columbia and an incoming Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science and the Bieler School of the Environment at McGill University. I am also affiliated with the Munk School’s Environmental Governance Lab, the University of Victoria’s Centre for Global Studies, the Cascade Institute, and the Earth System Governance Project. I am on the Steering Committee of the Women & Inclusivity in Sustainable Energy Research (WISER) network and a member of the Climate Social Science Network (CSSN).
I am a political scientist specializing in comparative energy and environmental policy and politics. My work seeks to understand the contested politics of fossil fuel production and the policy pathways that move us towards more just and sustainable energy systems. My book project, Mega Pipelines, Mega Resistance, examines the causal impact of resistance to fossil fuel infrastructure. My work is published in the Canadian Journal of Political Science, Energy Research & Social Science, Global Environmental Politics, and Journal of World Trade.
I hold a Ph.D. in Political Science and Environmental Studies from the University of Toronto and a Master of Arts in Global Governance from the Balsillie School of International Affairs.
I live and work on unceded Kanien’kehá:ka Territory.
