Alex is a Scientist at the Institute for Mental Health Policy Research at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), and an Assistant Professor at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto. His program of research focuses on LGBTQ2S youth homelessness, access to mental health services, the experiences of LGBTQ2S youth in shelters and housing programs and the ways broader policy issues serve to create oppressive contexts for LGBTQ2S youth.
He has worked closely with municipal and provincial governments to develop strategies that address the needs of queer and trans youth experiencing homelessness and is committed to research that successfully and ethically engages the community and situates LGBTQ2S young people experiencing homelessness as knowledge makers and creators.
