How have your History in Art studies helped you since you graduated?
After completing my MA in History in Art at UVic, I started a PhD in Art History at the University of British Columbia. My coursework and research at UVic provided an excellent grounding in the discipline and has influenced my current PhD research. My first publication, accepted in a peer-reviewed journal, was based on a research paper written for one of my History in Art graduate courses at UVic.

Brief Biography
I am a fourth-year PhD candidate in Art History at the University of British Columbia. I am currently working on my dissertation, which is on architecture and artworks in international air terminals. My broader research interests include the history and theory of twentieth-century architecture, public artworks commissioned for public and semi-private spaces, early twentieth-century modernism, and theories of affect, space, and mobilities.

I am also a sessional instructor at the History in Art Department at UVic. I am currently teaching HA 387B - 20th Century Architecture in Europe and North America.
