Dr. Christiane Hoppmann is a Professor, Canada Research Chair and Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research Scholar in the Department of Psychology at UBC. She is also a core member of the UBC Center for Hip Health and Mobility.
Dr. Hoppmann examines when and for whom social relationships and goals promote or undermine health and wellbeing. Her projects focus on everyday processes using novel daily life assessments (‘time-sampling’) in combination with stress markers and objectively measured health behaviors. She seeks to better understand how everyday processes accumulate over time and end up shaping longer term health trajectories.
Dr. Hoppmann’s research is very collaborative and typically involves partners from different disciplines, local stakeholders, community organizations, and other Canadian and international universities.
