Our research group aims to understand and address the social and ecological determinants of global health and development. In particular, our group is interested in how factors such as poverty, migration, food security, and climate change interact and shape health and development outcomes.
Our group uses an interdisciplinary and mixed methods approach to guide our research. In particular, we draw on the strengths of international development studies, epidemiology, and public health, and use both qualitative and quantitative data collection tools and analyses. We conduct research in close collaboration with community partners and organizations with the goal of co-producing information to support decision-making and action.
Key areas of research include: migration and health, food security, healthcare and social service access, and climate change and health. Regionally, we currently work in the Philippines, Honduras, and Canada.
