Primary position: Assistant Professor, Department of Population Medicine, OVC, University of Guelph.

Research:
My research is in public health with a particular focus on occupational health, workplace mental health, risk assessments, and absenteeism and presenteeism across different sectors. I am particularly interested in identifying and understanding work-specific risk factors related to physical and mental health while considering other social determinants of health. In doing so, I commonly use quantitative (including meta-analyses) and qualitative methods and welcome collaborations amongst various disciplines to improve workers' lives. 

Clinical:
I am a clinical and school psychologist. I provide psychological assessments to children, adolescents, and adults in the public sector and private sectors.  

GRADUATE STUDENTS: Please note that I am only accepting graduate students through the Department of Population Medicine. For more information please visit my faculty website through Population Medicine: https://ovc.uoguelph.ca/population-medicine/faculty/basem-gohar
