Sol Park is a MSc student in Psychiatry at McGill University. Her interests pertains to the effects of (in)adequate parent supervision on children's wellbeing, especially among immigrant families in Canada, and families and youth in low- and middle-income countries. Sol is a research assistant for Dr. Mónica Ruiz-Casares, in which Sol drafted community observation protocols pertaining to child supervision and obtaining parenting measures used in low- and middle-income countries, among other tasks. Sol's Master's project aims to explore the acculturation of parenting beliefs and practices among South Korean families in Ontario, with special attention to exploring the caregiver's and children's perception of what constitutes as adequate supervision and its effects on the physical and mental health of the child. Sol also assisted with the preparation of the program for the 6th Conference of the International Society for Child Indicators (ISCI), which brought together researchers, practitioners, policy makers and child advocates from across the world to promote the development of child indicator research and implications for policy and change. Prior to starting her MSc in Psychiatry, Sol completed her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology, with double minors in Behavioural Science and Sociology at McGill University.
