I am a lawyer by profession and most recently served as Law Clerk to the Hon. Mr. Justice Binnie of the Supreme Court of Canada. Prior to this, between 2008 and 2010, I practiced in the area of general commercial litigation at a Wall Street firm. My experience working at the epicenter of the Global Financial Crisis made me realize the need fundamentally reform the governance and regulation of large financial institutions. To this end, I am pursuing a Master of Law and writing a thesis that I hope will propose a regulatory framework better suited to mitigating the systemic risks that materialized three years ago. In 2011, I became a Fellow of Action Canada, where I am studying the links between inequality and the knowledge-based economy. I am also President of the CAPE Scholarship, which helps people from disadvantaged backgrounds pursue professional studies. Upon completion of my studies, I will join the University of Ottawa's Faculty of Law as an assistant professor. (Source: www.gatescambridge.org)
