Over the past two years I have had the opportunity to work for the Canada Border Services Agency as a Student Border Services Officer where I got hands on experience on returning Jihadi fighters and other individuals seeking entry into Canada that have prior serious criminality convictions. This sparked an interest for me to pursue research under different topics of terrorism for my masters program. I am currently a student of the Master of International Public Policy program at Balsillie School of International Affairs. In my first semester I have focused my research on terrorism, specifically returning Jihadi fighters, the refugee system being used by terrorists as a new means of migration, and examining the cost benefit analysis of funding and resources in Canada dedicated to fighting the war on terrorism. Being art of the Canadian Network for Research on Terrorism, Security and Society will allow me to further my knowledge on the subject matter and also contribute my research to a greater purpose.
