Research Interests
My current research interests include gender and nicotine dependence among individuals living with mental illness and community mental health nurses’ perceptions regarding implementing smoking cessation interventions into their practice. I am also interested in the relationship between ‘loss of identity’ and addiction, as well as substance use among aboriginal women and youth.
