Jeenat is a first-year PhD student in RESP at UBC. She finished her MA in Economics from Simon Fraser University (SFU) with a SSHRC funded Canada Graduate Scholarship.

She will assess the differences in COPD burden and care across regions, the aftermath of an exacerbation through resource use and associated costs, and the future healthcare utilization trends related to COPD. Before starting her PhD, Jeenat worked as a Data Analyst at BC Cancer Research Centre under Cancer Control Research where she explored the trends in incidences and mortality of childhood and young adult cancer survivors residing in British Columbia. She has a wide variety of quantitative research, academic, and administrative experience in roles ranging from research assistant to principal investigator for projects related to randomized control trials, health care financing strategies and mental health economics. Jeenat’s research interest lies in the field of health economics and economic evaluations to conduct advanced cross-disciplinary research and collaboration. She loves traveling and exploring new food places in her free time.
