Ph.D. Candidate
Urban and Exurban History of Imperial Russia




Bachelors and Masters Degrees in History at Queen's University


I am a PhD candidate in the History Department under the supervision of Professor Ana Siljak. My dissertation centers on urban and exurban green space in late Imperial Russia within the context of both domestic and international greening movements. As my topic is interdisciplinary, I have taken courses in a variety of fields, including art history, urban & regional planning, and environmental studies. Aside from my work in the department, I have also spent time working with a variety of student organizations on campus, including one of the student newspapers, The Journal as a writer and editor, and the Society for Graduate and Professional Students as one of the Vice Presidents.
