Biography

Lupin Battersby is a PhD student in the Faculty of Health Sciences at Simon Fraser University. Her doctoral research, supported by a Canadian Institutes for Health Research Doctoral Award, looks at research centres knowledge translation practices and outcomes. Prior to her doctoral studies Lupin completed a Master of Arts in counseling psychology. Her interest in knowledge translation was inspired while working both as a counsellor and researcher, seeing first hand the challenge of knowledge exchange in research and practice. Lupin joins us after completing a five-year CIHR Research and Development Centre grant as the Knowledge Translation & Finance Manager for the Centre for the Study of Gender, Social Inequities, and Mental Health (CGSM).

Lupin is actively involved in the British Columbia Knowledge Translation Community of Practice (BC KT CoP), where she is on the Leadership Committee and is the Communications Lead. Lupin has been involved in qualitative research projects related to health policy, psychiatric deinstitutionalization, self-directed care, therapeutic jurisprudence and smoking cessation.

While at the GRC, Lupin will primarily work on the housing projects: Baptist Housing Evaluation and Place-Making with Seniors: Towards Meaningful Affordable Housing. The former is evaluating the process of transitioning from an institutional care setting into a homelike care environment; the latter examines how older residents engage in place-making. Her work on these projects will involve evaluations of how the built environment and new housing projects affect residents, families, and those who care for and serve older adults.
