I am a Fellow at the Trudeau Centre for Peace, Conflict, & Justice and a Political Science Candidate at the University of Toronto. I study why humanitarian organizations choose intervention or non-intervention through the lens of health, with particular focus on responses to refugee health needs after the outbreak of the Syrian Civil War in 2011. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Middle East Studies and Political Science from McGill University and a Master of Arts in International Relations from the University of Toronto. As a 2016-2017 Traditional Fulbright Award Winner, I am currently working with Dr. Michael Barnett at George Washington University and Dr. Amanda Murdie at the University of Georgia and am in residence at the Institute for Middle East Studies at the Elliot School of International Affairs.
I strive to be a strong scholar citizen – a scholar who is generous with her time and mentorship, open to disagreement and debate, and ready to share what she has learned. This website is a step in that direction. I will share publications, reflections, as well as notes and pictures describing my fieldwork.
