Marina M. Doucerain, Ph.D.
I am an assistant professor in social/cultural psychology at Université du Québec à Montréal. My research focuses on the changes that migrants face when settling in a new society. Immigration is a demanding process: it entails learning new skills, often a new language, rebuilding a social architecture, acquiring new identities and renegotiating old ones, etc.
I believe that if we understand this process of acculturation more deeply, then we can provide better support to people going through it. My own experience as an immigrant prompted me to start exploring these questions during my PhD in Social Science at Concordia (after a B.Sc in biology, a B.Ed in science education, and an M.A. in Education, all at McGill University).
