Corin is a doctoral student in the Department of Geography at UBC working with Drs. Karen Bakker (UBC Geography), Leila Harris (UBC-IRES), and Jamie Peck (UBC Geography). Her interests centre on the political ecology of “developing differently” in Brazil. Corin also holds an M.A. in Geography from UBC. Her master’s thesis examined changing modalities of governance in Brazil’s São Francisco River Basin.
She is grateful for the current support of a Four-Year Fellowship and to have been awarded a Koerner Affiliated Fellowship and Walter W. Jeffrey Memorial Scholarship during her M.A. Before coming to UBC, Corin completed a Fulbright Fellowship in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, where she studied decision making dynamics surrounding a civil society-led river revitalization project called Meta2010.
She also received a B.A. from Smith College with majors in Government and French Language and Literature. She graduated with High Honours in Government and the Dawes Prize for Best Undergraduate Work in Political Science.
Prior to pursuing graduate education, Corin worked in government and elected politics.
