Dr. Ellen MacEachen
Associate Professor /Associate Director, Graduate Research Programs, University of Waterloo
Dr. Ellen MacEachen's research examines the design and performance of work and health systems to identify how they can be improved and adapted to fast changing economic, social and technological environments of our global economy.
She is particularly interested in international work disability policy and the health risks and opportunities of new forms of work (such as “sharing economy” gigs). She specialises in qualitative and evaluation research methods and my research is informed by a sociological lens, which means that her studies are sensitive to complex interrelationships between individuals and broader contexts. She co-directs the Centre for Research on Work Disability Policy, where she works closely with community stakeholders.
