Dr. Tustin is unavailable to supervise Occupational and Public Health (MSc) students in 2024-2025. 

I am a field epidemiologist with a focus on communicable diseases with extensive experience working in public health at the local, provincial, national and international level.

I hold a BSc in Honours Biology from the University of Ottawa, a BASc in Occupational and Public Health Safety from Toronto Metropolitan University, and an MHSc and PhD in Epidemiology from the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto.

I am a CIHR public health policy fellow, a certified public health inspector and a field epidemiologist graduate with the Canadian Field Epidemiology Program (FETP). In 2012, I was awarded with a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for my service to public health in Canada and abroad.

As an epidemiologist for the Public Health Agency of Canada, the World Health Organization and Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors without Borders, I have had the opportunity to investigate several outbreaks both locally and abroad. Examples include several cancer clusters and foodborne/waterborne illness outbreaks, investigations and research into adverse events following immunization, a Stop Transmission of Polio mission in Cameroon (2008), and emergency responses for the H1N1 pandemic in Mexico and Nunavut (2009), the Ebola epidemic in Guinea (2014-15), post-Ebola recovery efforts in Sierra Leone (2016), and the Ebola epidemic in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (2019). 

My main research interests lie broadly in the fields of communicable disease epidemiology, field epidemiology, vaccinology, global health, food safety and environmental health, and health communication/promotion.
