With a strong interest in current social issues and their impact on individuals, Amélie has completed a bachelor’s degree in psychology at Université du Québec à Montréal, and a master’s degree in sociology at Université de Montréal. Her research interests revolve around gender inequalities, sociology of work and psychological health. These different interests have led to the development of a research thesis on how the effects of gender modulates mental burden at work, focusing on the impact of gender relations on the feeling of mental overload and how they influence the expression of individual malaise. Focusing on a comprehensive approach, she aspires to gain a better understanding of the dynamics that distinctly surround the lives of women and men at work, with the aim of encouraging renewed forms of gender equality, both in terms of organization and social representations.
Amélie currently holds the position of research coordinator for the Pragmatic Health Ethics Research Unit. In collaboration with the Centre hospitalier universitaire Sainte-Justine (CHUSJ), she is working on research projects that aim to better understand the experience of patients as well as to develop an intervention program that facilitates the transition of young people with chronic diseases from the pediatric system to the adult health care system, in order to promote their well-being and personal growth throughout this process.
