Brief Biography

Marin is a SSHRC Joseph-Armand Bombardier Doctoral Scholar and recipient of the Jean Royce Fellowship (2016) and R.S McLaughlin Fellowship (2015). Marin is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Political Studies at Queen’s University where she specializes in Gender & Politics and Political Theory. Her doctoral research, under the supervision of Professor Margaret H. Little, explores an under-examined area in Canadian immigration literature: community and civic immigrant settlement agencies catered specifically to women. Her research examines how immigrant women’s organizations from various regions across Canada respond to gender-specific needs in neoliberal times.

In additional to her doctoral work, Marin is actively engaged in the teaching and learning community at Queen’s University as an Educational Development Associate with the Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL).  She is also currently serving as a Graduate Student Advisor with the School of Graduate Studies (SGS) and is engaged as a Graduate Research Fellow at the Centre for International and Defence Policy (CIDP) in the CIDP Gender Lab.
