I am currently working on my Master of Arts Degree in Geography at York University. My research interest lies primarily on the urban and the rural and their intersections with development. This trajectory of scholarly interest then branches towards the study of tourism landscapes, urban informality, and strategies of resistance. Currently, my research is on the take-over of government built-housing by the homeless and by informal settlers in the Philippines and its relations to the Philippine social movement.
