Dr. Tyler Marshall
Dr. Tyler Marshall holds a PhD from the Department of Psychiatry, Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry at the University of Alberta. Tyler’s research interests lie largely within the emerging field of public psychiatry, focusing on examining novel clinical methods for improving outcomes among young people with substance use and mental health disorders. His work is interdisciplinary in scope (both quantitative and qualitative), and largely concentrated on topics such as person-centred care, shared decision-making, and harm reduction, with intention to inform public health policy and/or clinical practice. Tyler has received additional research training through multiple Graduate Research Assistantships, in addition to internships with the Faculty of Graduate Studies & Research, Graduate Student Internship Program (GSIP), the Integrative Health Institute, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (USA). More recently, he received patient and community engagement (PaCET) training through the Women and Children’s Research Institute. During Fall 2020-Winter 2021, Tyler was the lead instructor for a survey course on cannabis (INTD-250), and he is currently the interim director of operations at Our House Addiction Recovery Centre in Edmonton. Prior to studying at the University of Alberta, Tyler earned a master’s degree in public health (MPH) from the University of Memphis (TN, USA), and earned a bachelor’s degree in neuroscience (BSc) from Rhodes College (TN, USA).
