Aline is an adjunct professor at the Université de Montréal’s School of Social Work. She was previously a postdoctoral researcher at the IRCM’s Pragmatic Health Ethics Unit.
Aline is involved in a project on interventional research in neuroethics with a focus on transitions of children with neurodevelopmental disabilities from paediatric to adult systems. Her doctoral research entitled “Out of the darkness and into the light: The experiences of fathers of children with neurodisabilities” was funded by the Fonds de recherche du Québec en société et culture (FRQSC) and the Canadian Child Health Clinician Scientist Program (CCHCSP), a transdisciplinary training and mentorship program for future independent scientists in child health research. Aline is a clinical social worker with over 10 years of experience in paediatric social work and has taught foundational social work courses at McGill University’s School of Social Work. Her research interests include understanding the broader social contexts and lifespan experiences of parents and caregivers of children with neurodevelopmental disabilities, qualitative research methodologies, and social work. In June 2018, Aline will be joining the School of Social Work of the Université de Montréal as an assistant professor where she will continue her research, in collaboration with the Pragmatic Health Ethics Unit, on ethics in transitional care, participatory research methods and advancing methodologies in interventional ethics.
