I am a public policy and applied research practitioner based in Vancouver BC.

I currently work as a Research and Policy Analyst at the Canadian Urban Institute where my work focuses on urban issues such as housing, economic policy, and sustainable urban development. I am also the President of the Canadian International Council (CIC) – Vancouver Branch. A non-profit organization whose mandate is to engage Canadians on international issues.

I hold a Master of Public Policy and Global Affairs (MPPGA) from the University of British Columbia, with a specialization in resources, energy, and sustainability, and a B.A. in Asian history and Canadian politics from Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Surrey, BC.

I write about issues related to public policy, environmental sustainability, and geopolitics. I’ve written for media organizations in Canada such as the National Observer, the Hill Times, the Vancouver Sun, the Hamilton Spectator, and more.
