Educational Background

  • B.A., Political Science, McGill University
  • M.A., Political Science, McGill University


I am a PhD student majoring in Political Theory and minoring in Comparative Politics. My research interests are in contemporary political theory and the history of political thought, with a focus on postcolonial theory, critical theory, and feminist thought. I am particularly interested in the ways that the insights of psychoanalysis have been used in francophone and anglophone anticolonial political thought. Before coming to Cornell, I completed a B.A. and M.A. in Political Science at McGill University.
