I am a PhD student in the Department of Sociology at the University of Toronto. My key research interests are in economic sociology, organizations, social and environmental change, public policy, and networks.
I am broadly interested in how markets, organizations, and households are affected by, and respond to, social and environmental change. In one line of research, I am analyzing how organizations operating within market-based incentive systems in the renewable energy industry can exacerbate household inequality. In another line of research, I am exploring how financial institutions and businesses respond to incalculable climate change risks and environmental hazards.
I hold a MSc in Social Science Research Methods (awarded with distinction) from the University of Bristol and a BA in Economics from the Bucharest University of Economic Studies. Previously, I worked for the European Central Bank, the Vienna Institute for International Economic Studies, the University of Bristol, and Transparency Solutions.
