Bio/Research

My research focuses on health issues of youth, with a particular emphasis on how stigma, violence and trauma affect adolescent health and risk behaviours, and the environmental assets and protective factors that foster resilience among vulnerable young people in spite of stigma and trauma. These populations include: sexual minority youth (gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender teens), homeless and runaway youth, sexually abused and sexually-exploited teens, pregnant and parenting adolescents, youth in custody, immigrant youth, and indigenous young people in Canada and other countries.
