I practice in the areas of writing, architecture, design, and art to examine the social and political forces that shape our environments. My research as a doctoral candidate at McGill University focuses on architecture as a site of encounter between Indigenous Peoples and the settler-colonial state (1920-1970s). This research is supported by a SSHRC Doctoral Fellowship, McGill Engineering Doctoral Award, and a Schulich Graduate Fellowship.
My writing has appeared in The Site Magazine, Canadian Architect, C Magazine, and others, and my academic work has been published in the Journal of the Society for the Study of Architecture in Canada, Active History, Scapegoat, and is forthcoming in RACAR: Revue d’art canadienne / Canadian Art Review. I was the winner of the 2015 C New Critics Competition (for a review of Shirin Neshat’s work) and received an honourable mention in the 2016 MAQ Young Critic in Architecture Competition.
As an intern architect, I have worked on a variety of institutional and residential projects in the public and private sectors. I hold a Master of Architecture, Bachelor of Architectural Studies (Honours), and Graduate Diploma in Cognitive Science from the University of Waterloo. I have also studied creative writing at the University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies and with the Quebec Writers’ Federation.
