Education and Research

Previous education and current research interests

I have been fortunate to study at a number of universities across Canada. These opportunities have provided a broader understanding of planning in the Canadian context. My educational background is as follows:

Degree University Location Year
Bachelor of Arts, Geography (Distinction) University of Regina Regina, Saskatchewan 2004 - 2009
Master of Arts, Planning University of Waterloo Waterloo, Ontario 2010 - 2012
PhD, Planning University of Calgary Calgary, Alberta In progress

My current research interests within planning largely centre around the following issues:

  • Growth management through intensification
  • Downtown and inner-city planning and revitalization
  • Urban design as it relates to the interface of the public and private realms
  • Comparative urban policy
  • Canadian cities with a particular interest in the mid-sized city
