I am an independent research consultant and PhD Candidate in criminology at the University of Toronto. From 2017-2021, I was a Junior Fellow at Massey College. I conduct research in the areas of policing and social control, criminal justice policy, social inequality, data justice and information politics, and computational social science. As a consultant, I have worked for numerous Canadian private and public sector agencies, as well as international organizations like the OECD and Public Law Project.
My academic research has been published in a number of peer-reviewed journals, including Social Forces, British Journal of Criminology, Quality & Quantity, Canadian Journal of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Sociology, and International Political Sociology, and has been supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the Canadian Sociological Association, and the Government of Ontario. I am the co-editor of two academic books, Freedom of Information and Social Science Research Design (Routledge, 2019) and Changing of the Guards: Private Influences, Privatization, and Criminal Justice in Canada (UBC Press, 2022).
Since 2018, I have been a member of the editorial board of the University of Toronto publication, Criminological Highlights. From April 2020-July 2021, I co-led the Policing the Pandemic Mapping Project in partnership with the Canadian Civil Liberties Association. Beyond my research, I am an avid rock climber, mountain biker, and cross-country skiier.
