I am a SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow at The MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies at Yale University. I received my PhD in 2015 from the Department of Political Science at the University of Toronto. I am currently affiliated with the Governance, Environment, and Markets Initiative at Yale University and the Environmental Governance Lab at the Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto. I am also a research fellow with the Earth System Governance Project.
My research interests include global environmental politics, transnational governance, international political economy and corporate social responsibility. My research explains why private actors get involved in global environmental governance and under what conditions they will create credible regulatory solutions to environmental problems.
My work has been published in Global Environmental Politics, Review of International Studies, Regulation & Governance, and Business and Politics. I am the recipient of a SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellowship, SSHRC Doctoral Fellowship, several Ontario Graduate Scholarships, and the Oran R. Young Prize for best early-career paper at the 2014 Earth System Governance Conference.
Prior to pursuing a PhD, I held positions with the Government of British Columbia, BC Hydro, and Canadian Business for Social Responsibility.
