Experience in LGBT2SQ research

I use he/him pronouns. I am a doctoral candidate at Wilfrid Laurier University in the Faculty of Social Work. My dissertation research examines intersectional discrimination of LGBTQ2S+ people and their social and mental health well-being within LGBTQ2S+ leisure spaces. I seek to embed health equity within my work to enhance the well-being of marginalized populations. Some of my past research projects included: inclusion practices on postsecondary institution campuses; policy analysis related to gay/bi/queer men’s well-being; development of measures associated with heterosexism, cisgenderism, and microaggression; and addressing stigma associated with substance use through photovoice. I currently work as a program planning, evaluation, and research specialist in the public health sector.

Interest in LGBT2SQ research

My work focuses on intersectionality, discrimination, resilience, and resistance. I hope to enhance the social wellbeing and mental health of diverse LGBTQ2S+ people through my research. I am interested in learning how to engage diverse sexual and gender minority individuals in research processes, while also developing an understanding of the different processes of resilience and acts of resistance employed to overcome stressors in their lives.
