Amanda's PhD research explored weight-related health policy. As a student in the School of Public Health Sciences, Amanda collaborated with leaders in her field and had access to large cohort data sets for her analyses. Her work contributed to knowledge developed to inform future policies that aim to improve health for Canadians.

Tina Chan (MSc '20) conducted her research in the Interactive Data Exploration and Analysis Lab. Her research used gamification to increase peer support behaviour for people facing mental health challenges. Tina's self-produced, 60 second explainer video was ranked amongst the finalists in the 2019 #GRADflix graduate studies video competition.
