I am an assistant professor at the School of International Development and Global Studies at the University of Ottawa. I was previously a Banting postdoctoral fellow at the Université de Montréal.

My research addresses the marginalization of feminist and postcolonial research in International Relations, White Saviorism in international development, inclusive development at the World Bank, and the gendered, racial, colonial and class-related inequalities entrenched in the institutionalized world order.
