Kate is one of MAP’s research assistants. Her role provides support to the MAP team and collaborators across the breadth of MAP’s research activities, and in particular through tasks such as data collection, processing and management; preliminary analysis; and dissemination of results.

After finishing her undergraduate studies in biological physics and global health from the University of Toronto, Kate pursued a Masters in Public Health from the University of British Columbia. Kate personalized her MPH to include a greater emphasis on epidemiology, global health and communicable diseases. Her interest in spatial epidemiology led her to take University of Victoria Continuing Studies course on GIS and Population Health and brought her to MAP in April 2017.
