Congratulations to Alexandra Sawatzky

alexCongratulations to Alexandra Sawatzky for successfully completing her PhD qualifying exams!

Alexandra finished her undergraduate degree in Arts & Science with a cumulative GPA of 89%, and directly entered into a PhD program in Public Health at the University of Guelph. Her research interests include the wellbeing of Indigenous peoples in Canada, integrated environment and health surveillance, as well as physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and social impacts of climatic and environmental change in Inuit communities. Recognizing her academic aptitude, she has been awarded over $100,000 in scholarships and travel grants to support her PhD research.

Sharing her research with the scientific community include two peer-reviewed publications, as well as seven oral and five poster presentations at national and international conferences. In addition, she has authored 25 research-related reports, and writes an insightful and reflective blog, “Unlearn. Relearn. Repeat.”

It has been a pleasure working with Alexandra over the past two years, and Sherilee Harper and I are thrilled to continue working with Alexandra as she begins her PhD Candidacy!
