Kathy Georgiades is an Associate Professor in Psychiatry & Behavioural Neurosciences at McMaster University and a member of the Offord Centre for Child Studies.
Dr.Georgiades’ program of research seeks to quantify and reduce inequities in mental health and academic achievement among vulnerable populations, particularly immigrant and refugee children/adolescents. Her research examines how individual and contextual level influences (i.e., family, school and community) independently and conjointly contribute to inequities early in the life course. Through this line of research, she hopes to identify modifiable variables at the individual and contextual level that can serve as potential targets for prevention and intervention programs and ultimately contribute to the development and evaluation of such programs.
Dr. Georgiades holds a New Investigator Award from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and the David R. (Dan) Offord Chair in Child Studies.
