The Dahdaleh Institute is showcasing the current work of PhD students associated with the Institute at the first annual Graduate Student Symposium. Graduate students detailed their research journey and the progress they have made so far.

This year, the following three PhD students presented on the following research topics:

Linn Biorklund Belliveau: Linn is a researcher at Dahdaleh Institute and a PhD student in Critical Human Geography. She is also an affiliate at York University Centres for Refugee Studies (CRS) and Research in Latin America and the Caribbean (CERLAC). Her areas of knowledge include forced migration, criminalisation, extractivism and access to care, with a range of related publications. Linn has extensive experience with NGO's including with Médecins Sans Frontières and the United Nations. Her current research at the Dahdaleh Institute focuses on the nexus of forced displacement, environmental change and health.

Raphael Aguiar: With over a decade of experience in the field, Raphael Aguiar has worked in many places such as the Middle East, Africa, Southeast Asia and Europe. With a Masters in Social and Cultural Anthropology from Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Raphael entered the Doctoral Program in Health Policy and Equity at York University in 2019. His interests revolve around the global health impact of patterns of consumption, networking and communication. His researched is focused on global governance of antimicrobial resistance.

Eunice Choi: Eunice is entering her first year of study in the Ph.D. program at York University’s Faculty of Environmental and Urban Change (EUC). Over the next couple of years at York University, Eunice will focus on developing community participatory methods for Agent-based and System Dynamics Modelling. She will also define principles of adaptive environmental management and draw on systemic intervention practices that emphasize participatory methods, and that respond to the challenges of marginalization processes.

Reminder - We are seeking applications from exceptional incoming and continuing domestic and international graduate students who wish to contribute to York University’s growing global health research community. Specifically, we invite applications from students aiming to conduct research and related scholarly and creative activities in line with the three themes of the Institute: planetary health, global health and humanitarianism, and global health foresighting.
