I am a PhD candidate in Higher Education at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) at the University of Toronto. My doctoral research is funded by SSHRC Doctoral Fellowship. I am also a recipient of MITACs Research Training Award and Ontario Graduate Scholarship. I study how universities and societies interact. My doctoral work explores how shifting global frames of research excellence impact public universities, their organization structures, policies and practices.
My research agenda also focuses on new models of research and science governance, innovative approaches of measuring scientific productivity and creating research evaluation systems at international, regional, national and institutional levels. My research is usually international in scope and comparative in nature, using qualitative and quantitative methods.
I am also a Research Assistant to Dr. Creso Sá, Distinguished Professor of Science Policy, Higher Education, and Innovation, at the Centre for the Study of Canadian and International Higher Education (CIHE) at OISE, the University of Toronto. I work on a Canadian Research Council (SSHRC) funded project examining international research collaborations and gender patterns in research productivity and recognition.
Apart from my academic activities, I have been leading and contributing to a wide range of research, institutional innovation and strategic projects for post-secondary institutions in Canada, North America and internationally.
