I am a researcher and program evaluation expert focused in two thematic areas in youth health: implementation science, and evaluation research. I am interested in research that involves partnerships with organizations and communities to ensure that evaluation results produced are relevant and ideally integrated into a community strategy, advocacy efforts, and programs.
I have conducted research with youth and other community members to assess the impacts of different initiatives on physical activity, healthy eating, and mental health environments. Recently, I have focused my efforts on Indigenous communities in different areas of Canada.
