Dr. Rozzet Jurdi-Hage, an Associate Professor in Sociology & Social Studies, obtained her Ph.D. from the University of Western Ontario, Canada. Her interdisciplinary training in Political Studies (B.A.), Population and Health (M.Sc.), and Social Demography (Ph.D.) exposed her to mixed research tools and methodologies; survey design methodology; demographic theory and techniques; advanced statistics for complex, hierarchical, and longitudinal data; community-engaged social and public policy research; sociology of risk and uncertainty; and sociology of higher education. Dr. Jurdi-Hage’s current research includes examination of post-secondary students’ attitudes, evaluations, and behaviours, with publications in Canadian Journal of Higher Education, Australian Journal of Environmental Education, Social Psychology of Education, Journal of Social, Behavioral, and Health Sciences, Women’s Studies International Forum, etc. Her interests in the formation of attitudes and the cognitive-behavioural link extend to projects gauging the human dimensions of complex socio-ecological systems and risk exposure and vulnerability, with an emphasis in Saskatchewan. Relatedly, Dr. Jurdi-Hage is the Principal Investigator in ongoing research projects on risk exposure and vulnerability to residential fires, funded through various external and internal grants. She also has a strong publication and research track record on sexual, reproductive, maternal and child health and family planning and contraceptive use, with publications in Birth: Issues in Perinatal Care, Health Policy and Planning, Health Policy, Journal of Biosocial Science, International Journal of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Health Care for Women International, Eastern Mediterranean Health Journal (WHO publication), Canadian Studies in Population, Journal of Comparative Family Studies and Migration Letters. Her work also appears in book chapters, policy briefs, research reports and working papers. Considering her applied multi-methodological and technical expertise, she often oversees aspects of the research process as related to sampling, data collection methods, instrument design, data processing, management and choice of analytical techniques, data analyses and interpretation. She teaches Research Methods (undergraduate and graduate); Statistics and Software (basic and advanced); Philosophy of Science (honours and graduate); and Interdisciplinary Issues in the Social Sciences.  Please see link to publications: ORCID:
