Dr. Chris Buse
Dr. Chris Buse is an Assistant Professor at Simon Fraser University’s Faculty of Health Sciences.
Dr. Buse’s research operates at the interface of the social and ecological determinants of health, aiming to redress the differential and often avoidable exposures to the ill-health effects of environmental changes which are worsened by systemic forms of socioeconomic marginalization and oppression.
His research program is underpinned by a focus on environmental health justice, and is animated by two inter-related areas of interest: the impact of climate change on health equity and the public health response; and the health impacts of natural resource development.
Dr. Buse has held numerous competitive awards and high-profile research positions, including as Senior Research Scientist and CIHR-funded Postdoctoral Fellow with the University of British Columbia’s Centre for Environmental Assessment Research, and MSFHR Postdoctoral Fellow and Inaugural Lead Researcher for the University of Northern British Columbia’s Cumulative Impacts Research Consortium.
He holds a PhD in Public Health from the University of Toronto’s Dalla Lana School of Public Health, a MA in Sociology from the University of British Columbia, and a BA in Sociology and Political Science from the University of Alberta.
