I am a public policy professional, researcher and writer 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, local economic development, and urban development.

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.
