Amy is a PhD candidate at the University of British Columbia’s School of Population and Public Health. She was a Registered Nurse prior to obtaining her MSc in Occupational and Environmental Hygiene from UBC’s School of Environmental Health. More recently she has worked as a researcher with CAREX Canada, developing estimates of exposure to carcinogens in Canadian workplaces and assisting with the establishment of a national workplace exposure database.  


Amy's PhD research focuses on various aspects of shiftwork, including shiftworkers' exposure to light at night, organizational determinants of shiftwork practices, and shiftwork's effects on mental health.

She is also working with CAREX Canada to assess occupational exposure to hazardous drugs in Canadian settings.
