Position: Undergraduate Research Student
Bianca joined the SPIN team as an Undergraduate Research Student in September 2022 in order
to complete her undergraduate thesis. Originally from Toronto, she is currently completing her
fourth and final year in the BSc Psychology program at McGill University. Her previous research
has focused on chronic pain and how external environmental factors can affect an individual’s
experience with a chronic pain condition. She will be working on a project that investigates the
trajectories of pain in scleroderma. Bianca is interested in bridging the gap between public health
issues and chronic conditions, longitudinal research designs, and knowledge translation.
