Academic Interests
My broad research interests include poverty, human development, and social policy. My current research focuses on understanding the disparity in financial capability and wellbeing across individuals’ social locations such as age, gender, income levels, and immigration status. My current research also includes understanding the debates and developments on basic income in Canada. I teach social policy, research methods, and social administration.
