Why I am working with the Research Shop: I originally applied to work with CESI because of the community and collaborative nature of the work. I highly value accessible knowledge and the principles of knowledge mobilization. When research is meaningful to all parties involved and has the ability to mobilize, it creates a ripple effect in society. The research shop allows me to develop my critical thinking skills and methodological skills through a variety of projects and tasks.
Program of Study: I am a Master of Arts candidate in the Sociology department. I completed my undergraduate degree at Guelph in the Criminal Justice and Public Policy department. My exploratory undergraduate thesis examined students with disabilities and different educational platforms (inclusion, stand alone, etc.) and behavioural outcomes. My current research is examining students with disabilities and how they are being influenced by the current pandemic.
