Labor, Capital, Finance and Socialist Transition

Before beginning your studies at the Institute of Political Economy where did you study and what program(s) were you enrolled in?

I studied at McGill University where I got a BA in Political Science and mostly focused on International Political Economy, Canadian Politics, and Global South Studies.

What is it specifically that attracted you to study Political Economy at Carleton?

I wanted a program where I could delve deeper into the field of political economy, especially with a radical approach. The Institute has been able to provide a fantastic foundation with which I am able to study various topics in the broad discipline.

My areas of research interest include…

Labor, Capital, Finance and Socialist Transition.

What activities have you been involved in lately? (work placement, work experience, Undergraduate research, research positions, volunteer work, awards, travel, favourite books)

I have been involved in Carleton’s local union CUPE 4600.

What advice would you give to a prospective Political Economy graduate student?

I would suggest to really think about the topics you want to research and reach out to others who are studying those areas. The best way to get started is to jump into the literature, and you will find what you are looking for that way.
