Dr. Hind Sbihi is a senior epidemiologist at the Office of the Public Health Officer in the BC Provincial Ministry of Health. She is also an Adjunct Professor in the School of Population and Public Health at the University of British Columbia. Formerly, she was a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Stuart Turvey's lab at the BC CHildren's Hospital Research Institute. Her research focused on the human health effects of the built environment (air pollution, natural spaces, microbiome) with a growing interest in identifying intervention strategies to reduce exposures and improve health. Transforming plausible mechanistic insights into effective applications for the prevention of pediatric allergic diseases such as asthma was the focus of her postdoctoral training.
Sbihi received postdoctoral fellowships from the BC Children's Research Institute Mining for Miracles program, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, and the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research. Throughout her PhD, her research was supported by the CIHR Banting and Best doctoral award, the four year UBC doctoral fellowship and the Killam Pre-doctoral fellowship. In 2011, she received the David Bates Scholarship, a British Columbia air quality fund, which recognizes graduate students in the field of environmental and air quality sciences.
