Research

I am a development geographer and PhD student at McGill University. My doctoral research examines contemporary urban agriculture in Yogyakarta, Indonesia and residents’ social movements to create more sustainable urban futures. My work mainly builds from scholarship on political ecology and feminist approaches. I employ creative methodologies that are qualitative, participatory and ethnographic. I hold a MA in Geography (2017) and a Joint Hons. BA in Geography & Environment (2014) from McGill University.

Previous work: Qanuilirpitaa? 2017 Nunavik Inuit Health Survey

I recently worked with the Canada Research Chair on Housing, Community and Health Research Group at McGill University (2017-2019) and the Institut national de santé public du Québec (INSPQ)  as a project coordinator and research assistant on the community component of the 2017 Nunavik Inuit Health Survey. I was responsible for developing and measuring indicators of community health and well-being. I travelled on board the CCGS research icebreaker Amundsen to carry out data collection in each of the 14 communities of Nunavik between August-October 2017. I conducted qualitative analysis, disseminated findings through oral presentations and posters at academic conferences, as well as through reports for local communities and regional organizations. The results of this work will be used by the Nunavik Regional Board of Health and Social Services to identify priorities for a new strategic regional health plan.
