Dr. Anne Gadermann completed her PhD in psychometrics at the University of British Columbia and received postdoctoral training in psychiatric epidemiology at Harvard Medical School. She also completed postdoctoral training in population and public health at the Centre for Health Evaluation and Outcome Sciences (CHEOS) at the Providence Health Care Research Institute and the Human Early Learning Partnership (HELP) at the University of British Columbia.
Anne’s research focuses on examining the social determinants of physical and mental health and well-being in various populations, including children and youth and individuals who are homeless or vulnerably housed. Currently, she examines how risk and protective factors at different ecological levels (i.e., family, school, neighbourhood) are associated with mental health and well-being in children and youth. A major purpose of this research is to identify modifiable factors of mental health disorders to inform prevention and interventions strategies. This research draws from large-scale linked datasets, including student- and teacher-reported survey data as well as administrative health and education data.
