Hailey is a second year MSc student in the L’Abbé lab. Her research focuses primarily on cross-sectional and longitudinal analyses of the nutritional profile of restaurant foods in Canada between 2010 and 2020. Further research interests include: examining the sodium content in prepackaged foods in Canada over time; and assessing whether the use of FoodFlip©, an application developed by the L’Abbé lab, can promote behavioural changes in purchasing and facilitate an increase in nutrition knowledge.

Hailey joined the lab during the summer of 2018 as an undergraduate research student. She completed a cross-sectional examination of the sodium content in prepackaged foods and analyzed its relationship with price for the 2017 Canadian food supply.
