Claire’s role on our team includes performing systematic literature reviews, quantitative data analysis, survey development, participant recruitment, and data collection. Her experience with peer-reviewed research and research methods make her an asset to our team.
In working with Be the Change Group since April 2018, Claire has collaborated on a number of our projects. Specifically, she conducts reviews using the Cochrane’s guidelines for systematic reviews, and is proficient in quantitative data analysis and the use of SAS, SPSS, Stata, Minitab, and R. A lover of interdisciplinary health research, Claire has worked on a wide variety of projects since she began working with us, including IH Food, INITIO, GS HPC, the BCCH Family Immunization Clinic, and GreenCare.
Deemed the office “quantitative savant”, Claire is passionate about evidence-based research and novel quantitative methodologies, and counts substance use, social injustice, and mental health as key areas of interest. Claire has authored several peer reviewed publications on a variety of topics including alcohol policy, cannabis policy, and tobacco policy. When she isn’t reading her textbook collection (yes, for fun), she enjoys experimenting with new recipes, beer drinking, and yoga. Having recently relocated from Vancouver, B.C. to Edmonton, Alberta, Claire misses the ocean and the many delectable restaurants Vancouver has to offer, but misses nothing more than her wonderful co-workers.
Claire holds a BHS (honours) from the University of Northern British Columbia and a Master of Science in Population and Public Health (Epidemiology) from the University of British Columbia. She is currently working towards her PhD in Epidemiology at the University of Alberta.
