Supervisor: Dr. Mirna Carranza
Thesis Title: Negotiating settlement: The socioeconomic exclusion of African immigrants in low-income neighborhoods in Toronto
Abena is in her first year of the PhD program. Her work explores the role social and settlement services play in African immigrant settlement in low-income communities in Toronto. She situates her research between pertinent scholarship in the field of social work and her experience as a community worker in low-income communities in Toronto.

She has a strong background in community development work with various communities in Toronto, the most recent one at Black Creek Community Farm.
