Hi! Welcome to my personal website.
I am a PhD Candidate in criminology at the University of Toronto, a computer programmer, and a research and policy consultant. From 2017-2021, I was a Junior Fellow at Massey College. I conduct research in the areas of policing studies, criminal justice policy, freedom of information law, and computational social science. As a consultant, I have worked for various Canadian private and public sector agencies, as well as international organizations like the OECD.
My research has been published in a number of peer-reviewed academic journals 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 (UBC Press, 2022) and Changing of the Guards: Private Influences, Privatization, and Criminal Justice in Canada (Routledge, 2019). My work has been profiled in national and international news outlets, including Nature, The Globe & Mail, The Toronto Star, The Washington Post, and BBC News.
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 skier.
