Research & Professional Interests

My research interests concern housing accessibility, financialization of housing and socio-spatial polarization in Canadian cities. I previously worked as a land-use planner and policy advisor for the Province of Ontario, an experience that motivated me to investigate how experiences of vulnerably housed individuals can be better accounted for in urban planning policy. My current research investigates the connection between park use and housing conditions for low-income renters in Toronto's St. James Town neighbourhood during the COVID-19 pandemic.
