REAL WORLD EXPERTISE & COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS

Soo Min Toh's main research interests deal with the interactions of sojourners with their host country co-workers and supervisors.

She is also interested in the role of social undermining on the outcomes of immigrants. Currently, Soo Min is engaged in a research project funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Council examining how the experiences of new immigrants in Canada affect their long-term career success.
