I completed my BA in Politics and Public Administration at Ryerson University in 2007. At Queen's University (Kingston) I completed an MA in International Politics in 2008 and a PhD in Comparative and International Politics in 2013. My research interests include European Politics, the rise of the Radical Right, international and regional monetary systems, the politics of emotion, and constructivist theory. I recently published a book titled Eurozone Politics, and am currently working on a paper on the politics of emotion. Finally, I appear regularly in the media to discuss European political and financial issues. For fun, I read classical literature, do hip-hop dancing, and try to write poetry.
