Public Health Researcher, University of British Columbia

Jessica completed her PhD at the School of Population and Public Health at the University of British Columbia. Her interests in global and environmental health stem from her experiences abroad, when she worked and collaborated with international and local non-profit organisations in Thailand, India, and South Africa.  Her doctoral work analysed the built environmental determinants of healthy and resilient cities with the focus on equity and sustainability. Her hope is to continue to contribute to guidelines and tools to help build more equitable and climate-resilient urban health systems in Canada and beyond.
