About my research…

Currently,I am working on two research projects. The first is an evaluation of the John Howard Society of Toronto's Reintegration Centre. I am also involved on a team project which has collected survey data from 1,700 homeless youth from across Canada in 2018 and 2019.

How my research improves life…

Prison releasees need community supports or else they pose a high risk of re-offending. Homeless youth are one of the most marginalized groups in Canadian society and more information is needed to better understand their paths to exists from the streets.
