Rebecca Hellam holds a B.A. (Hons.) in Political Science from the University of Toronto. Now in her second year of the Munk School’s Master of Public Policy program, she joins the Lab after an internship at the Mowat Centre, where she used census data to study neighbourhood diversity and local socioeconomic conditions in Toronto.
