Aida is a born and raised Torontonian, currently completing a double major in Art History and Anthropology at the University of Toronto. Some of her academic interests include Medical Anthropology, specifically, examining rituals surrounding death and mourning in the context of high mortality. Her background and training in the visual arts colours her passion for both art history and cinema. She is a connoisseur of horror, art house and avant garde cinema, and she is interested in the ways film can behave as both a cultural object and subject. In her life outside of academia, she is a bartender/mixologist, an avid runner, and an enthusiastic reader of the modern tragedy.
