Emily Mohamed Martone

Third Year Student, BSc (Honours) Kinesiology, School of Kinesiology and Health Studies, Queen’s University

I was born in Brandon Manitoba and grew up in Vernon B.C.  I really enjoy being active and spending time outside as well as traveling and spending time with my family.  Through my other jobs and volunteer positions a major focus has been making physical activity accessible because I believe that accessibility plays a big part in one’s health.

I am currently a third-year undergraduate student at Queen’s University in Kinesiology.  I am an intern in the CEHE Lab working under the supervision of Dr. Jeff Masuda.  I am very interested in being a part of the research internship because I want to learn more about how the environment someone lives in effects their health. The project that I will be working on this year is the Playground Project. Through this project I will be studying how various factors such as environment effect children’s ability to be physically active. This will be done by conducting interviews with parents from different locations in Kingston to ask them questions about specific aspects of where their children are physically active and any barriers to them being able to do this.  Being an intern in the CEHE lab is also a great experience as I hope to pursue graduate studies in a health -related field and this will opportunity will definitely aid in my pursuit of my goals for the future.
