Interests

My research interests focus on workplace diversity, employment inequalities, and occupational health and safety issues from a multi-level perspective. Specifically, I explore the complex relationships between well-being and employment outcomes of workers with multiple identities at the societal, organizational, and individual levels. My current populations of interest are immigrants, people with disabilities, and personal support workers.
