Affiliated with the Population Oral Health research cluster, Dr. Levine currently directs the Non-Thesis MSc program in Dental Sciences. She is also the faculty representative for the Indigenous Health Professions Program and an advocate for faculty inclusivity. Dr. Levine is accepting graduate students.

Research Interests

Rooted in sociology literature and creative writing (M.A., Université du Québec à Montréal 1995) my academic interests reflect diverse disciplines and would inform my perspective on university government as a Senate representative. I have worked at McGill for several years and currently am a full-time CAS lecturer at the Faculty of Dentistry. I teach, engage in research, and contribute to program development at both graduate and undergraduate levels. My involvement in many Faculty interdisciplinary initiatives enables me to appreciate the Senate’s broad academic mandate.
