About Me


PhD Researcher. 

I am currently a PhD candidate in Organization Studies at the Schulich School of Business, York University, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I have 7+ years of educational and work experiences with conducting projects using both quantitative (e.g., experiments, surveys) and qualitative (e.g., interviews) methods and analyses. You can read more about this here.

My research interests lie broadly within the diversity, equality, and inclusion sphere, with my work aiming to provide evidence-based understanding and direction for those looking to create change.

Working with People. 

I have a history of working with various mental health advocacy groups, having aided in creating and organizing events and campaigns, as well as creating tools to aid others in seeking the services they want and need. Check out The Youth Wellness Quest, which was created with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. 

I also have served in various positions that involve building community. I am currently the lab manager for the GEDI Lab, and recently was a member of the EDI working group for the Canadian Society of Industrial and Organizational Psychology


Outside of research and work, I'm usually spending time with friends and family. Hobbies of mine include nature walks, reading, art, and waiting for the next season of Stranger Things.
