Geography and Methods
Thematic Research Area
After completing a Master’s degree focusing on the exclusion of asylum seekers from refugee protection for serious criminality, I am now working on my PhD, also in immigration and refugee law, under the supervision of Professor Catherine Dauvergne. I am conducting research for my dissertation on the detention of migrant women in Canada, with a focus on the intersection of risk and gender in the immigration detention context.
In tandem with my dissertation, I have several research projects on the go. One, in collaboration with Professor Efrat Arbel, examines how the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic impacted (and continues to impact) immigration detention in Canada. A second concerns the intersection between indigenous rights and bordering in the North American context.
I also maintain a practice as an immigration and refugee lawyer with Edelmann & Co, based in Vancouver.
