Margaret Erickson

PhD Student

Margaret grew up by the ocean on traditional Semiahmoo territory, her great-grandparents immigrated to Canada from Sweden, Finland, and Scotland. Her doctoral research at UBC with the Centre for Gender and Sexual Health Equity explores how incarceration shapes experiences and health outcomes for women living with HIV, and draws on the lived experience and wisdom of cis and trans women involved in an ongoing community-based research project (the Sexual Health and HIV/AIDS: Longitudinal Women’s Needs Assessment). Margaret is a former youth worker, and a trained sexual health educator. She is also informed by many years working with and learning from residents of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. Margaret values collaborative, applied, and policy relevant research that centres the voices and expertise of people with lived experience. Margaret’s perfect day of self-care is basking in the sun with a good book, and snacks. Margaret thrives off human connection, so feel free to reach out via Linkedin or email.
