Biography:

Kevin is a McGill University student who is enrolled in the Master of Science in Public Health (Non-Thesis) in the Department of Epidemiology, Biostatistics, and Occupational Health. Originally from Drummondville,
Quebec, he moved to Montréal to pursue his higher studies, Kevin graduated from McGill University with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. He mainly explored risks of mental illness through the theoretical lens of the
Social Determinants of Health with a special emphasis on vulnerable populations and how it interrelates to those social factors. He is interested in pursuing research on population mental health, social determinants of health, aging populations and how they can potentially relate to individuals within societies.


Kevin is strongly skilled in the domains of research, statistical sampling, quantitative methods, psychology, and medical sociology. He is committed to better understand what makes a society “mentally ill” which drove him
towards getting involved with the DEPRESSD research team in their living systematic review on mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic.
