She has a joint appointment as assistant professor in Political Science and the interdisciplinary Health Studies Program. She trained as a physiotherapist, than later earned a PhD in Health Policy from the University of Toronto. Her research interests deal with the politics and meaning of privatization, particularly how historical legacies have shaped these and how they continue to change in new historical contexts. Empirical work to date has focused on the impact of the organization of policy decision-making on public-private change, drawing largely on historical-institutionalist approaches.
