Dr. Catherine Paquet
Dr. Catherine Paquet is an Associate Professor at the Department of Marketing of Université Laval. Dr. Paquet’s research builds on her multidisciplinary training in physiology (BSc, McGill), consumer psychology and advanced statistics (PhD, McGill), and socio-spatial epidemiology (Post-doctorate, Université de Montréal, University of South Australia). Her primary research interest lies in the influence of environmental factors on chronic diseases, well-being and health-related behaviours. She is particularly interested in the community and organisational factors that shape health behaviours such as dietary behaviours and how such factors can be changed to promote well-being across the lifespan. Her research also investigates genetic and psychological markers associated with greater responsiveness to environmental cues.
