Jason Nickerson






I work as an operations researcher and practitioner in global public health, specializing in the assessment and mapping of disrupted health systems in conflict and disaster settings, and in health systems strengthening and program delivery in Canada and other high-income countries.

The foundation of my work is built from my clinical expertise as a respiratory therapist, with experience in the areas of anesthesia, critical care, non-communicable disease/chronic disease management, and other areas of respiratory medicine and surgical care.

My global health work focuses on the development and conduct of needs assessments during humanitarian emergencies, including natural disasters and conflicts. I have worked in Ghana, Haiti, Malawi, and Sudan and have collaborated with many United Nations, governmental, and non-governmental partners on both large and small projects across several countries and continents.
