Dr. Jeff Masuda is a human geographer, specialized in human rights, public health, and the environment. He has published widely in the areas of community based participatory research, equity focused knowledge translation, health geography, and environmental justice. Formerly as a CIHR New Investigator and now as a Canada Research Chair, Jeff directs the Centre for Environmental Health Equity, a platform for policy-relevant research that supports communities through creative research and translates knowledge into action for more equitable and just environments. At CEHE he leads collaborative projects with scholars, community leaders, practitioners, and policy makers across Canada and internationally, focused on issues relating to housing and tenant rights, neighbourhood change, food security, the right to the city, and Indigenous energy sovereignty. Jeff is a former Advisory Board member of the CIHR Institute of Population and Public Health and is a Senior Editor for the Canadian Journal of Public Health.

The single most important health equity priority for Canada's public health system today, upon which all other priorities depend, is to find ways to move beyond our colonial legacies.
