School of Population and Public Health
I am a PhD student in the School of Population and Public Health at UBC. My PhD research is looking at the transfer of responsibility for health care services in BC’s provincial correctional facilities to the Provincial Health Services Authority.
I also work at CCPHE as the Evaluator on a 5-year project focused on working with men who are federally incarcerated in BC to develop participatory approaches to preventing sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections.
What are your key research interests?
I am particularly interested in how governance models and policy can impact healthcare and health outcomes for people who are incarcerated. This includes continuity of care with community services, quality of healthcare, and opportunities to address health inequities.
I am also interested in participatory and collaborative approaches to research in prison health.
What drew you to working with Transformative Health & Justice?
I was drawn to working with Transformative Health and Justice by the unique opportunity to contribute to collaborative, community-based and multi-disciplinary approaches to addressing the vast health and justice inequities of the criminal justice system.
