Jessica McCutcheon PhD Candidate, University of Saskatchewan

jem875@mail.usask.ca

I completed my BSc. at the University of New Brunswick in 2009. During that time, I worked with Dr. Poulin and Dr. Gouliquer on their longitudinal military project. Since that time, I completed my MA in Applied Social Psychology at the University of Saskatchewan, under the supervision of Dr. Melanie Morrison, and I am now a PhD student in the programme. My research interests include gay and lesbian issues, gender roles, and attitudes toward marginalised groups. I have also been involved with a number of program evaluation projects, with a particular focus on programs that provide services to marginalised persons.
