Shenaz is committed to improving the lives of ordinary Canadians. With her joint appointment in both the UBC\\\’s Faculty of Medicine and at the School of Public Policy at UBC, she researches how Canadian federal policy can improve psychological well-being for all citizens. Her findings led to the development of the Federal Settlement Platform a national web-based orientation system that connects pre-arrivals with settlement agencies. This matters because it can help restore Canada’s place globally as an innovator in peace and human solutions. Invited by local MPs, she also participates in national level policy steering discussions and teaches classes on Social and Bio-Psychology at UBC main point grey campus.
