Welcome Christiaan!

CRUISElab would like to welcome Christiaan, our new Investigaytors coordinator!

Christiaan (he/him) is an education administration professional with several years of experience in both K-12 and Post-Secondary/Higher Education settings. He has worked for the Toronto District School Board, York University, and, currently, the University of Toronto.

He holds a Master of Education from the University of Ottawa where he pursued graduate research under the conceptual framework of “sex/ual education” in both formal and informal contexts. Specifically, he considered how Grindr users might construct their own understanding and knowledge of PrEP through their experiences within the app, how that information was presented to them (e.g., through conversations, profile text, advertisements), and what Grindr users did, or did not, do with this information (e.g., start taking PrEP).

In the summer, you can find him frolicking under the sun on Hanlan’s Point Beach.
