I am Associate Professor and William Dawson Scholar in Political Science and International Development Studies at McGill University.
My research focuses on refugees and internal displacement, humanitarianism, disasters, transitional justice and accountability for massive human rights violations. I have a particular interest in the roles of international organizations such as the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM). I have received grants for my work from agencies including the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), the Fonds de Recherche du Québec – Société et Culture (FRQSC), and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC). I currently serve as co-editor of the Journal of Refugee Studies, co-editor of the McGill-Queen’s University Press Refugee and Forced Migration Studies Series, and coordinator of the McGill Refugee Research Group.
Alongside my research and teaching, I have worked with a range of organizations concerned with development, human rights and humanitarianism. From 2012-2014, I was a Fellow in the Foreign Policy Program at the Brookings Institution. I have also worked with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), and served as the Cadieux-Léger Fellow at Global Affairs Canada.
