Lukas Mortensen-TruscottBSc. Kinesiology, School of Kinesiology and Health Studies, Queen’s University 
I was born in Kingston, Ontario and am currently a fourth-year undergraduate student studying Kinesiology at Queen’s University. I am an intern in the CEHE lab under the supervision of Dr. Masuda. The research I am involved in falls under the organization RentSafe (an organization that aims to address housing-related health risks experienced by tenants living on low income via an intersectoral approach), and aims to examine the perceptions and challenges that small-scale landlords face with regards to maintaining healthy living conditions for tenants.

My goal is to eventually pursue a career in medicine, and I feel that being an intern with CEHE will foster many positive learning experiences that will be influential in allowing me to pursue this goal. Being heavily involved in the sciences during most of my undergraduate studies, being a member of CEHE is a refreshing experience as it has allowed me to take a step back from the physical sciences and view individual and community health from a more holistic perspective.

If I’m not busy studying or in the lab, you’re most likely to find me in the Queen’s ARC or at home playing guitar
