My Research Interests

My research focuses on the role of urban environments (social, built, physical) in shaping social determinants of health and health outcomes among immigrant and Indigenous populations. I have extensive experience in quantitative and qualitative research methods. Over the past two decades, I have built strong relationships with community partners in the Region of Peel that has facilitated novel community-based research examining health inequities among recent and long-term immigrants.

I participate in the following research clusters:

Urbanization, Transportation & Health

Graduate Student Recruitment

I am looking for MA and Ph.D. students interested in issues related to immigration and settlement, access to health care services, Indigenous health and wellbeing, and older persons health. Visit my website for more information on previous and on-going research projects.
