Associate Editors

The Public Policy and Governance Review is dependent on the hard work of its dedicated editorial team.

These are our dedicated volunteers who edit article submissions, maintain our high editorial standards, and write many of our best articles. Associate editors are normally Year 1 Master of Public Policy students at the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy.

2018-2019 Associate Editors

Declan Ingham is a year one Master of Public Policy candidate at the University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy with an Honours Bachelor of Social Sciences from the University of Ottawa.
His eclectic policy interests stem from his varied experiences at the departments of Employment and Social Development Canada, Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada, the Canada Revenue Agency, and  his time as a researcher at a national healthcare union.
With an aim to transforming the Canadian policy environment, Declan studies social, urban, economic, and labour policy alongside foreign affairs, electoral politics, and political philosophy. When not studying public policy or politics, Declan is busy living it by exploring Toronto and waxing poetically on the topics du jour.

Matthew Kupfershmidt completed an honours specialization degree in political science with a minor in economics at Western University. He previusly worked as an analyst for a student think tank called the Leadership and Democracy Lab, and is interested in security and border policy and how intergovernmental cooperation contributes to security’s successes or failures. He also has a keen interest in the role of the private sector in the creation and implementation of public policy.

Lin Ying Lin is a Year 1 Master of Public Policy candidate at the University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy. She double majored in Sociology and Criminology during her undergraduate years at the University of Toronto, and has internship experience as a legal assistant at an employment law firm.

Lin prefers to study at Laidlaw Library and Hart House near University College on campus. In her free time, she enjoys visiting the Art Gallery of Ontario and the Royal Ontario Museum with her friends and family.

Ryan Phillips is a Year 1 MPP Candidate at the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy. He comes from a background in finance and has worked on a Bay Street Trading floor prior to joining the MPP.
Ryan’s policy interests include government responses to technological change and automation, the role of evidence in effective policy making and issues of Canadian federalism. As a major food enthusiast and amateur wine snob, he can usually be found eating.


Lawrence Zhang is currently a first year Master of Public Policy Candidate at the University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy.  He is interested in immigration policy, infrastructure policy, and big questions around how we will future-proof the economy.  He previously worked in politics and is doing his best to adjust to the life of a student again.
