Marie-Eve Carrier was born and raised in Québec city where she first studied Tourism at Collège Mérici (1997). After a few trips to Eastern Europe, Russia and Central Asia, she decided to start studying Anthropology at the Université de Montréal, where she completed her Bachelor’s degree in 2004 and her Master’s degree in 2006 under the supervision of Dr Mariella Pandolfi. Through the study of the nostalgic discourse towards the communist period, her thesis described the increases of social inequalities and the augmentation of tourism experienced by the Olkhon Island population in Siberia. Marie-Eve started working in the field of Psychiatry in 2006, when she was offered with a research coordinator position at the Institute of Community and Family Psychiatry of the Jewish General Hospital. Between 2006 and 2013, she was involved in many quantitative and qualitative studies related to perinatal mental health.
Marie-Eve joined SPIN in March 2013, and coordinates the project on a day-to-day basis.
