As a public policy analyst, Krystle collects and analyzes data related to public policies and their success, or lack thereof. Through rigorous examination, she works to make sense of these policies and to analyze and evaluate their actual effects, which often diverge from their expected results. She appreciates the impact that her research can have on Canadians, and enjoys having to think critically and creatively, all while keeping up to date on economic and policy developments.
Krystle holds a BA in Development Studies (International Development), a BSc in Biological Sciences, and a Master of Public Policy from the University of Calgary. She is also currently working on a Master of Science, which she is due to complete in 2021. She has received several academic scholarships for the quality of her work at the graduate level and has published articles in a number of specialized academic journals. In her free time, Krystle enjoys rock climbing, travelling, exploring the great outdoors, and trying to see the world through the eyes of her young son. She joined the MEI team in February 2021.
