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 received a Citation of Special Recognition from the Graham Foundation’s Carter Manny Award program in 2020 and is supported by a SSHRC Doctoral Fellowship, McGill Engineering Doctoral Award, Schulich Graduate Fellowship, Peter Guo-hua Fu Fellowship, and Louis B. Magil Fellowship. In 2020-21, I am participating in the Doctoral Research Residency Program at the Canadian Centre for Architecture.
My writing has appeared in the Literary Review of Canada, Canadian Architect, The Site Magazine, C Magazine, and elsewhere. My academic work has been published in RACAR: revue d’art canadienne / Canadian Art Review, Journal of the Society for the Study of Architecture in Canada, Active History, and Scapegoat. I was the winner of the 2015 C New Critics Competition and received an honourable mention in the 2016 MAQ Young Critic in Architecture Competition. I am currently the Communications Officer for the Society for the Study of Architecture in Canada.
In the fields of architecture, urban design, and planning, I have worked on a variety of projects in the public and private sectors. I hold a Bachelor of Architectural Studies (Honours), Master of Architecture, 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.
