Ph.D Candidate in Environmental Studies, York University.

My research focuses on consultation policies in Alberta with First Nations and
Metis communities around tar sands projects. My master’s research looked at
mining and consultation in Peru. I have co-authored book chapters on Canada’s
foreign policy and support of extractive industries in the Americas, especially
around investment agreements. I continue to be involved in solidarity work with
communities impacted by mining in Latin America with the Mining Injustice
Solidarity Network in Toronto.
