PhD Student Epidemiology

Chelsea is completing her PhD in Epidemiology through the University of Calgary, where she is exploring the links between the built environment and physical activity. Chelsea’s research capitalizes on residential relocation studies to address the issue of residential self-selection. She is also interested in studying whether the relationship between the built environment and physical activity is affected by a person’s socioeconomic status to gain a better understanding of how equitable the built-environment-physical activity relationship is. Chelsea previously studied social influences on dietary choices during her Master’s in Health Psychology from the University of British Columbia. In her free time, she also serves as the Research and Advocacy Chair of the Calgary Chapter of Obesity Canada and coaches recreational circus classes.
