Research and expertise

  • Background and interests
    Dr. Dogra is an Ontario Tech University Research Excellence Chair in Disrupting Human Mobility. Her research focuses on disrupting mobility patterns as they relate to mobility in one’s community (active transportation); disrupting daily movement patterns by interrupting sedentary behaviour; and disrupting privilege patterns by learning from under-represented communities. Dr. Dogra’s research is funded by each of the tri-council agencies (SSHRC, CIHR, and NSERC). She is part of the Public, Active, Clean, and Equitable (PACE) Mobility group, and Chair for the Committee for an Age-Friendly University.
