Ph.D. Candidate

University of Toronto

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Sociology at University of Toronto. My research investigates how work-family policies shape parent-child time, as well as the implications of this relationship for well-being and inequality. My research is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), and has been published in the Journal of Marriage and Family and Canadian Review of Sociology.

I completed a M.A. in Sociology at McGill University, with a specialization at the Centre on Population Dynamics, and also received my B.A. (First-Class Honours) in Sociology from McGill University. Broadly, my research explores issues of family, work, and social policy in Canada, the United States, and cross-nationally. I am trained in and primarily use quantatitve methods, with particular expertise in time use data.

I currently work for Statistics Canada in the division of Diversity and Sociocultural Statistics on a project developing a conceptual framework and data straetgy for Canada’s care economy.
