I currently work in Tokyo and have lived in Seoul, Taipei, Hong Kong, Beijing and several major Canadian cities. This experience has informed my desire to better understand Canada’s relationship with Asia. I have a B.A. in International Development with a minor in East Asian Studies from McGill University and I recently completed an M.A. in Global Governance at the University of Waterloo. My graduate level research focused on global environmental governance and I am particularly interested in exploring food and energy issues in the Asia Pacific.
