Hi! My name's Lucas Maughan. I'm a 3rd year pharmacy student and School Convenor at Trinity College Dublin. I have an interest in all aspects of pharmacy with particular interest in clinical, psychological and regulatory aspects. My research investigates household medication waste practices and associated consumer awareness, attitudes and behaviours in Ireland.
First year UCL medic with a particular interest in neuroscience and psychiatry. I am passionate about social equality and am the Co-Founder of a student-led widening participation group, DIMA (Diversity in Medical Education) @dimafoundation. I am fascinated by the interaction between health and culture, religion, history, politics, economics and the environment.
Hi there! My name is Asha, and I am a second-year undergraduate student at the University of Toronto, studying global health, political science, and psychology. My Laidlaw research project is focused on determinants of COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy among minority populations in Canada, and potential approaches to vaccine outreach and education. I'm always eager to chat about topics in global health, particularly those related to public health policy, planetary health, and social epidemiology!
My name is Abhay, and I'm in my 2nd year at the University of Toronto. I'm doing a double major in Global Health and Peace, Conflict & Justice with a minor in Indigenous Studies.
My research topic relates to climate change and mental health. I'm hoping to study the impacts of climate change on the mental health of youth climate activists across Canada and then do the Leadership in Action track next summer to put some of the findings from this research into action!
Beyond Laidlaw, I'm a huge hockey fan (and player) and also love playing the piano [if you want to check out my piano page]! I host a podcast called Different Boat, Same Storm (that's all about kindling empathy during the pandemic) and run a nonprofit - Break The Divide - that's all about creating personal connections and fostering empathy.
Hey, I'm Kobi (he/him) and I’m an undergraduate Laidlaw Scholar studying Biological Sciences with a concentration in Animal Physiology at Cornell University. I’m currently a sophomore from Ithaca, New York pursuing the pre-veterinary track, and my academic interests lie in veterinary medicine, genetics, and molecular biology. My research focuses on evaluating Holstein dairy cattle genomic data with the goal of identifying genetic regions associated with cattle health, dairy production, and disease resistance in order to inform cattle breeding and management decisions internationally. Outside of academics and research, I am passionate about traveling, sustainability, animals, and all things music.
I am a first-year student at Columbia University majoring in Biology and East Asian Studies. I was born in Canada but grew up with my grandparents in rural China much of my early childhood. I am very passionate about the intersection of science and society, with research interests in neuropsychiatric illness and modern Chinese politics.
Hello everyone, my name is Cesar Urzua and I am a current sophomore at Tufts University studying Biology and Child Study and Human Development. I am very excited to be a part of the Laidlaw Scholars Program and hope to be able to talk with so many other scholars soon. For my research, I will be focusing on brain response when presented to adverse childhood experiences, and how to possibly develop optimal strategies to combat chronic neural perturbations following these adverse childhood experiences.
I am an aspiring Clinical Psychologist, a second-year Psychology student at Tufts University, and a devotee of the arts. My interests consist of aiding in the destigmatization and reformation of mental health within Black and Brown communities. Another passion of mine is fighting for the prevention of child abuse as I continue to intern with Masskids, the Prevent Child Abuse chapter of Massachusetts. As a Laidlaw Scholar, my research coincides with my interests as I focus on how stereotypes, misrepresentation, and instances of erasure within the media impacts the socio-emotional and mental health of adolescents. The goal of this research is to further understand the problem then understand and navigate solutions. I hope to work with non-profits and other initiatives in the fight for mental health in underrepresented communities and would love to be contacted in support of these efforts.
I am a graduate of the University of York passionate about supporting learners with additional needs. I have experience working within a special education setting, supporting children with profound and complex needs as a TA and Assistant Educational Psychologist within a local authority. I am now training as an Educational Psychologist, completing my doctorate course with the University of Newcastle, UK. During my time as an undergraduate I studied the risk and protective factors of social and cognitive resilience in children with reading difficulties. I am currently working on this paper. As a graduate I was involved in the ParentChild+ project assessing the impact of a literature and play intervention for children who do not access nursery or pre-school facilities.
