Kat has recently graduated from her Masters in Sociology and Addiction Studies at the University of Toronto. She enjoys doing research with stigmatized and marginalized populations in Canada, and has worked with groups such as street-involved youth and clients of sex workers. Her interest in social justice grew with her volunteering experience in the Action Research Exchange program during her BA at SFU, and it continues with her current projects. With the Centre of Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto, she is working to understand resilience among street involved youth. She is also researching drug policy in Canada, particularly in its relationship to drug use trends, incarceration rates, and harm reduction initiatives. Kat is committed to exploring and engaging with social issues from a socially accountable, evidence-based perspective in order to challenge the stigmatization and marginalization of vulnerable groups.
