What projects are you currently working on?
I’ve got the chance to work for my supervisor, Dr. Craig Mitton, at the Centre for Clinical Epidemiology and Evaluation (C2E2). Here, I help out with some of the ongoing projects, where I’ve been involved with systematic reviews, stakeholder engagement interviews, and drafting reports. The team that I belong to at C2E2 produces health technology assessments (i.e., comparing different health interventions for their cost-effectiveness to help inform decision-making) for organizations such as the BC Ministry of Health. In terms of my school projects, I’m currently working on my thesis.
For my thesis, I’m exploring different options for a daily universal meal program in a school setting, before then modelling how much some of these options would cost in the context of BC public schools. This project involves a systematic review to explore the existing meal program options, a costing exercise to estimate the potential cost of operating some of these options in BC public schools, and then interviews with stakeholders to provide more context and insights.
