Bachelor of Arts, Carleton University, 2010
Master's of Arts, Queen's University, 2011
My research interest is the history of medicine and public health after the Second World War. For my Master's research project, I focused on the wartime health work of the Rockefeller Foundation and UNRRA, examining the extent to which the activities of these organizations served as a foundation for the mandate of the World Health Organization. My doctoral research, under the supervision of Dr. Jacalyn Duffin and Dr. Tim Smith, will explore the way that public health work was utilized to humanitarian ends, specifically in response to crises created by wars and natural disasters.
In 2011-2012, I will be TAing HIST 247 - French Cultural History.
