As a PhD student in the Public Health and Health Systems program, Amanda explores weight-related health policy. In the School of Public Health and Health Systems, she works with leaders in her field and has access to large cohort data sets for analyses. Her work will inform future policies that aim to improve health for Canadians.

Working toward her MSc Public Health and Health Systems in the Interactive Data Exploration and Analysis Lab, Tina's research uses gamification to increase peer support behaviour for people facing mental health challenges. Her self-produced, 60 second explainer video was amongst the finalists in the 2019 #GRADflix graduate studies video competition.
