Areas of Interest

Christine’s areas of interests are in occupational and environmental health, labour studies, knowledge, social studies of science and medicine, and qualitative methodologies. Her research focuses on the complex role of unknowns in knowledge about health, including how various types of knowledge (e.g., medical, scientific, legal, experiential) become mobilized in decision-making processes about health problems. She is also interested in qualitative methodological approaches, including multi-method qualitative research design and broader considerations about the connections between knowledge production and qualitative research.

As an Instructor, Christine is passionate about guiding students to learn about the complexity of social life and how to research social phenomena. Christine is also the Graduate Transitions Mentor for 2019 – 2020. She facilitates career transitions workshops, and also provides resources, strategies and tools for graduate students seeking information about, and preparing themselves for, the academic and alternative-to-academic job market.
