My Profile

BiographyContactKeywordsAssociated Projects


My first language is English, but I am actively working on becoming bilingual with French as a second language. I specialize in health measurement. My main research interest is in understanding and developing interventions to reduce socio-economic inequalities in health. I am also interested in researching methods for detecting and understanding potentially biased items and in general psychometric work.

The language and culture of my heritage is passed on to me orally. it's a different way off learning than how I am taught at school. How do I keep my traditional culture alive while learning to read and being immersed in the majority culture?

Reading is the core of learning and staying in school . improving reading skills with young Aboriginal children can open up the doors to future prospects.
