Omitted Lives: Access to Civil Registration and its Implications for Inequality

I am a graduate student in the Joint Degree Program in Sociology and Social Policy. My research explores the stratifying effects of legal status with a focus on undocumented immigrants, stateless persons, and refugees. My dissertation examines how access to civil registration operates as a mode by which inequality is reproduced. I am a recipient of a Mellon/ACLS Dissertation Completion Fellowship, and have previously been supported by the Social Sciences & Humanities Research Council of Canada Doctoral Fellowship.
