BSc MSc PhD
15-17 Tavistock Place
I am a post-doctoral research fellow funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and working with Dr. Steven Cummins in the Healthy Environments Research Group.
I have a Ph.D. in Public Health (with a specialization in Health Promotion) from the Université de Montréal School of Public Health (ESPUM). I am trained in the Environmental Sciences with a specialization in the ecological determinants of health (McGill University, 2006) and in Epidemiology and Community Health (Université de Montréal, 2008).
My research interests relate to urban health equity and the environmental determinants of health and health behaviours. In line with my inter-disciplinary training, I aim to view issues related to this broad theme under a holistic perspective.
For my fellowship I am analyzing data collected as part of the Olympic Regeneration in East London project to better understand how food environments where young people live and study influence their food behaviours.
I am also a co-investigator on the Interdisciplinary Study of Inequalities in Smoking, which seeks to uncover how individual and neighbourhood level characteristics interact to produce social inequalities in smoking among young adults in Montreal, Canada.
