On the job: I provide analysis of agricultural financial statistics, data validation, and analysis of data replacement opportunities via record linkage with alternative data sets
How I got here: Following my grad studies I papered the town with job applications. I ended up working on a research contract with an NDP MP and then on climate change policy at Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED), neither of which I obtained through traditional job applications.
Fun Fact: I enjoy golf, curling and cribbage, but am not as old as that might sound.
