EcoHealth Research with Indigenous Communities

Prospective Students

Attention students interested in using ecohealth approaches in Indigenous health research!

Prospective Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate students are encouraged to contact me at any time regarding independent study courses, undergraduate thesis, or part-time or summer research opportunities.  I’m currently recruiting undergraduate students to research the following topics:

  • Waterborne disease in Indigenous communities
  • Community-based public health campaigns in the Arctic
  • Systematic literature reviews on various environmental health and/or ecohealth topics
  • Other health topics in Indigenous communities

Contact me at

Note: We are currently recruiting undergrad thesis or independent study students for the 2016-2017 year.

Prospective Graduate Students

Prospective graduate students should contact me as early as possible to discuss research interests, suitability, and availability,  as well as to arrange for funding.

Please consider the following in advance:

  • Review the range of topics I tend to supervise
  • Contact me at .  In your initial email query, please include:
    • your academic transcript (an unofficial version is okay);
    • your CV; and
    • a paragraph regarding your research interests.
  • Note that the University of Guelph encourages students to find their own funding. Please see the Graduate Studies webpage for more information.
  • For information regarding admission procedures to the Department of Population Medicine, please see the Department Admissions webpage.

I generally do not supervise:

  • Chronic diseases (as opposed to infectious diseases)
  • Social determinants of health research without an environmental component
  • Students with GPA (or equivalent) of  less than 3.0

Note: I’ve filled all the spots for the 2015-2016 school year.
