My name is Elizabeth Nethery and I am a current PhD candidate in the School of Population and Public Health at the University of British Columbia. I am located in Vancouver, BC, Canada. I completed my undergraduate degree in Engineering Physics (Computer Science) in 1998 (UBC), a Masters in Science (Environmental Health) in 2008 (UBC) and then a Masters in Midwifery in 2016 (Bastyr University, Seattle). I completed the International Midwifery Bridging Program (UBC) and am now certified as a Registered Midwife in BC.
My research interests include perinatal epidemiology, reproductive health and health services delivery – particularly related to midwifery care. I am trained as a quantitative researcher with a strong background in data analysis in SAS and R. Prior midwifery, I was also a researcher at Health Canada where I worked on air pollution, environmental exposures and pregnancy.
My current dissertation study focusses on gestational diabetes and pregnancy under the supervision of Dr. Patti Janssen (UBC, SPPH and BC Women’s and Children’s Hospital).
I also do consulting work on research, knowledge translation and data analysis for a variety of different organizations.
I identify as she/her and am a white settler, 3rd generation Canadian, descended from Northern Irish and Ukrainian immigrants to Canada in the 1920-1930’s.
