Courriels (Travail)


J’ai suivi une formation en sociologie et en épidémiologie. Ma formation théorique et méthodologique dans chacune de ces disciplines a influencé mon programme de recherche. Mon expérience dans ces domaines m’a conduit à poursuivre un postdoctorat interdisciplinaire afin de pouvoir conserver les synergies que je voyais comme essentielles à la progression de mon programme de sciences en promotion de la santé et à ma formation dans les domaines et les différentes méthodes que j’utilise au travail. Les principaux domaines dans lesquels je travaille sont la santé chez les jeunes, avec une concentration sur la santé sexuelle, la consommation de substances et la santé mentale.
