I have a background in Theatre and Performing Arts. However, I changed my career path and completed a B.A. in Politics and History at Simon Fraser, an M.A. in Politics at University of Toronto, and a Ph.D. in Politics at York University. My Ph.D. thesis examined Post-Communist nationalism from a theoretical perspective. Specifically, it focused on how the development of nationalism in Soviet and post-Soviet experiences—using Ukrainian nationalism as a case study—could inform theories of nationalism. I have published my research on nationalism in refereed journals, participated in several conferences, written book reviews and conducted a manuscript review. My teaching career has been diverse, having taught graduate courses at University of Waterloo and University of Toronto, and courses in a number of different departments and programs at York. They include Social Science, where I have taught a General Education course on ‘Markets and Democracy’ for several years. In the Politics department, I have taught courses in a wide range of fields, including Canadian (‘Canada’s Social Policy’), Comparative (‘Post-Communist Transitions’), and International Politics (‘Human Rights and the Global Economy’). My current research interests include the Political Economy of nationalism, multiculturalism and immigration policy.
