Research interests

Anat’s main research interest is health status of the working-age population. Her research involves using large-scale health, labour and social data sets to assess micro- and macro-level factors that elicit health trends over time.

While at UNB, under the supervision of Dr. Neeru Gupta, Anat will be working with data housed at the New Brunswick Research Data Centre (located on the UNB campus) to explore issues related to health services utilization and patient satisfaction for chronic disease prevention and management.
