Radha Macculloch

Radha is entering her third year of doctoral studies in the School of Social Work at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec. Prior to beginning doctoral studies, she worked as a clinical research project manager in the Department of Social Work at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Ontario. At Sick Kids, she was involved in a broad program of research, which explored the lived experiences of children and youth with disabilities and chronic health conditions and their families.

Radha completed her Master of Social Work at the University of Toronto and her Bachelor of Social Work at McGill University. She has completed a post-graduate certificate in Autism & Behavioural Science at George Brown College and has worked as a behaviour therapist with children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Radha’s research interests include qualitative research methods and the lived experiences of young adults with neurodevelopmental disorders and their families. Radha is a recipient of a SSHRC Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship and her doctoral research focuses on the young adult’s transition to adulthood and their experience of negotiating access to valued social roles and meaningful opportunities within society. Her research is grounded in a commitment to providing a platform for the voices of young adults with neurodevelopmental disorders as they transition to adulthood.
