I am the Scarborough Cycles Bike Hub Coordinator, a joint initiative between Access Alliance Multicultural Health and Community Services and the Toronto Centre for Active Transportation, in partnership with Birchmount Bluffs Neighbourhood Centre, CultureLink Settlement and Community Services, the Toronto Cycling Think & Do Tank, and Cycle Toronto.
Employed as a Community Health Worker at Access Alliance, I work to increase cycling knowledge in Scarborough by building institutional/community capacity and addressing barriers. My goal is to get more people riding their bikes.
I obtained my Ph.D. from the Department of Geography and Planning at the University of Toronto. I have expertise in the following fields:
- Urban Livability and Active Transportation
- Metropolitan Governance and Civil Society
- Urban Greenspaces and Protected Area Management
