I am an actuarial educator and researcher with a strong interest in public policy surrounding pensions. Before joining the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science at Simon Fraser University, I spent 8 years in pension consulting. My research is heavily influenced by my background in industry, exploring emerging issues in pension practice through both qualitative and quantitative lenses. My current focus is on sustainability and intergenerational equity in occupational pension arrangements, innovative pension designs, and pension plan consolidation.
