I am currently a PhD student at the Centre for Industrial Relations and Human Resources at the University of Toronto.

I am interested in the labour market and social policy, as well as poverty/inequality reduction strategies. Other research interests include evaluating public policy using applied econometrics.

Presently, I am working on several projects related to a basic income guarantee (BIG), including the design, financing, and implementation of a BIG in Canada, as well as the political feasibility and framing of such a policy. This work includes simulating a revenue-neutral basic income, and examining the effects it could potentially have on the poverty rate, labour supply and distribution of income in Canada.
