Sonia Guerriero has extensive expertise in design and management of large-scale research and evaluation projects and has conducted research and analysis related to the provision of school-based mental health and addictions services in schools across the country, post-secondary enrolment and graduation rates from environment-related programs in Canadian colleges and universities, trends in work-related adult learning, and parental attitudes toward supplementary tutoring. Some of her other work includes research and reporting on various indicators of child and youth well-being in the areas of health, education, poverty and social inclusion, and economic opportunities.
Sonia has a keen interest in understanding gender differences and has written several evidence-based pieces for non-specialist audiences, such as gender differences in reading achievement and gender differences in science careers. She completed a PhD and post-doctoral work in Experimental Psychology at McGill University where her research investigated issues related to language acquisition. She is fluent in English, French, and Italian.
When she is not working, Sonia enjoys exploring the beauty of British Columbia’s geography and photographing the many animals she meets along the way.
