Ph.D. title: To be determined

Ph.D. supervisor: Yvan Leanza

Research interests: My general research interests are in the fields of intercultural psychology, health psychology, and intercultural communication. More precisely, I am interested by the way immigrant and refugee populations conceptualize mental illness, and the potential influence these representations may have on their health service use and their adaptation in Canada. Intercultural communication is also a research field that falls under my interests. Communication between health professionals and patients of different cultures as well as interpreting in health care are my newest research interests and will be at the heart of my Ph.D. dissertation.

Higher education: Honours Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, University of Manitoba, 2013
