I graduated from University of Toronto with a Masters degree in Landscape Architecture. My thesis project explored how designed landscapes could reveal the cultural, ecological, and political economic forces that shape the Icelandic energy sector. I then moved to Sydney, Australia where I worked as a landscape architect with a focus on large-scale public infrastructures. I also tutored at the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) in architectural and landscape architectural history and theory.


I am currently a PhD student and Vanier Scholar in the Department of Geography at the University of British Columbia. My work is broadly situated at the intersection of design studies and critical social theory, with a specific focus on landscapes of energy transition. My ongoing research examines how creative practice and geographic critique offer new pathways for the design of alternative futures and human-environment relations
