My name is Gabriel Eidelman.
I am an Assistant Professor, Teaching Stream, at the University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy, where I serve as director of the Urban Policy Lab, with a joint appointment at the Institute for Management and Innovation.
My research focuses on cities and intergovernmental relations in Canada and North America, and has been published in numerous journals, including Cities, Urban Affairs Review, the Journal of Urban Affairs, and the Journal of Urban History. My work has been profiled in the Toronto Star, Globe and Mail, and National Post, and I've appeared in news coverage by the New York Times, The Canadian Press, CBC News, and Maclean's magazine.
I earned my PhD in Political Science at the University of Toronto, and held a SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellowship at Western University. Previously, I worked at the United Nations Division for Sustainable Development in New York, and the Public Policy Forum in Ottawa.
