Current teaching responsibilities:

POPM*6950-02 Global Health (Winter 2019 semester)

This seminar course will explore different dimensions of health in low resource settings from an interdisciplinary perspective. It will provide students with a grounding in the current issues that make up the evolving global health landscape as well of the broader political economy in which health is produced and contested. Potential topics to be explored include infectious disease, chronic disease, nutrition and agriculture, health service delivery and systems, humanitarian aid, environmental health, urbanization, conflict, culture, and gender through a global health research methodology lens. Contemporary topics at the intersection of health, disease, and development will also be covered. Emphasis will be placed on the real world application of course assignments.

POPM*6950 Qualitative Methods (Winter 2020 semester)

During this course, students will learn about and apply the theoretical and empirical assumptions informing a variety of qualitative methodologies, with the end-product consisting of a written research report arising from a qualitative research study conducted by the student. Students will learn how to design, conduct, analyse, and report qualitative research associated with conducting one-on-one or focus group interviews. The major focus of the course will be on two kinds of qualitative analysis, grounded theory and thematic analysis, although students will be introduced to a broader array of qualitative methodologies.
