Research Assistant, Global Health & Humanitarianism [FW18-S19]
Tanya received a Bachelor's degree in Global Health at York University. She has a research background in the development of evaluation frameworks at The Evaluation Centre for Complex Health Interventions, St. Michael’s Hospital. During her time at the center, she worked on diverse projects in collaboration with the Canadian Partnership for Women and Children’s Health (CanWaCH), Global Affairs Canada and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Through her experience, she grew a strong interest in critically assessing health interventions, indicators, and frameworks around the quality of care in low-resource settings. She is interested in understanding public health policy through an intersectional and health equity lens and looks to broaden her understanding of global health challenges experienced in humanitarian settings.
