Eve is doing a Ph.D. in political science in collaboration with the School of the Environment at the University of Toronto. Eve holds a B.A. and an M.A. in political science from the Université de Montréal where she specialised in Canadian politics.

Her current research is looking at climate change initiatives taken by different levels of government in Canada. As part of the Environmental Governance Lab, Eve is working on cross-provincial initiatives regarding carbon tax, carbon-trading system, and other actions taken by Canadian provinces to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. As for her dissertation, she is studying waste management policies adopted by Canadian cities with a special interest on Quebec’s municipalities in order to understand why some cities are adopting more environmentally friendly urban waste policies, and the factors driving those cities to be more environmentally active.
