Sayna Leylachian


I am a first-year Master of Public Health student within the University of Guelph’s Department of Population Medicine. My research interests lie broadly within epidemiology, public health policy, and health equity. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Guelph as well. In my final semester, I completed an undergraduate thesis in Food, Agricultural, and Resource Economics under a faculty supervisor. After graduating, I spent over a year working full-time at the University Health Network in Toronto. In this role, I contributed to 3 clinical research studies pertaining to patients with metabolic genetic disorders.
