Danielle Thiel ACHORD headshot

Training Program: MSc in Epidemiology, School of Public Health, University of Alberta

Danielle grew up in Regina, SK. She graduated from Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, ON in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in Applied Bio-Molecular Science. During her time at Lakehead, Danielle had the opportunity to become involved in two different research projects, both relating to environmental microbiology. Working in the lab sparked Danielle's interest in research as a potential career option. Danielle also took courses relating to public health, and became interested in the population-level approach to studying diseases. She decided to step away from bench science, and pursue a Master of Science degree in Epidemiology at the University of Alberta. Danielle is fortunate to train under the supervision of Dr. Jeff Johnson and is excited to work with the ACHORD group. Her research will be around health outcomes in diabetes populations, focusing on lifestyle factors.

Danielle is also an avid long distance runner, and is a member of the U of A cross country and track and field teams. In her spare time, she enjoys camping, downhill skiing and spending time at the cottage.
