Anika Sehgal is a second-year PhD student in the Department of Community Health Sciences at the University of Calgary.
Prior to pursuing a PhD, Anika completed a Masters of Applied Science degree in Industrial and Organizational Psychology at the University of Waterloo where she examined the workplace experiences of Indigenous employees, and a Bachelor of Arts (Honors) degree in Psychology at Mount Royal University. Specializing in Health Services Research, Anika is currently developing a clinical tool that health care providers can use to better meet the needs of urban Indigenous patients.
In addition to her PhD work, Anika is actively involved in the development and implementation of the IPHCPR Network’s research initiatives. As a non-Indigenous researcher working alongside the Indigenous population, Anika hopes to continue her work toward translating knowledge and increasing awareness through research to improve health care for Indigenous peoples.
