Public Health Policy
CIHR Fellow
Sandhya is a PhD Candidate, returning CIHR Fellow in Public Health Policy, and a Junior Fellow at Massey College at the University of Toronto. Her research focuses on concussion and she works on projects relating to policy, sports, risk factors, education, sex/gender considerations, and management. Together with her twin sister Swapna, she co-developed a Pan-Canadian Concussion Strategy, consulted on provincial concussion policy, co-delivered a TEDx Talk, and they recently presented recommendations to Parliament this year. They’ve also worked on research to inform new concussion legislation in Ontario, Rowan’s Law. Sandhya has been involved in the field of concussions over the past decade as an advocate and policy consultant across Canada, as well as a researcher and clinical contributor at the University of Toronto. She is honoured to have been recognized as one of the top 50 most influential Torontonians [Grid TO Magazine] and as an Urban Hero [Toronto Community News] for her contributions to the field. She is passionate about science communication and outreach, and engages in it with her twin sister as the @steam.sisters on Instagram, and with the Royal Canadian Institute for Science and Let’s Talk Science, Exercise is Medicine, and on social media, television, public exhibits, and the Medicine in Motion Podcast. Sport [particularly hockey!] is one of her favourite hobbies, and what originally sparked her interest in concussions. She also loves to play the violin and sitar, travel, and learn languages!
