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 methodology; survey design methodology; demographic theory and techniques; advanced statistics for complex, hierarchical and longitudinal data; and community-engaged social and public policy research. Her research interests include population health; health information, statistics and survey; at risk and vulnerable populations; and risk causation, outcomes and prevention and safety. She 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. In addition to her other research contributions, she is the Principal Investigator in ongoing research projects on residential fires both locally and nationally, funded through external and internal grants awarded by the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs and the Council of Canadian Fire Marshals and Fire Commissioners; City of Regina; University of Regina; etc. She is also involved in various collaborative research projects on students’ attitudes, evaluations and behaviours, with publications in Canadian Journal of Higher 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, with an emphasis in Saskatchewan. 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 of results. 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.
