Four Year Doctoral Fellowship (4YF) Awarded to Débora Petry Moecke

Congratulations to Débora Petry Moecke for being awarded the Four Year Doctoral Fellowship (4YF)!

The Four Year Doctoral Fellowship program ensures UBC’s best PhD students are provided with financial support of at least $18,000 per year plus tuition for a maximum of four years of their PhD studies or until the end of their 5th years, whichever comes first.

Débora is a physiotherapist and a PhD student working in the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Research Laboratory, supervised by Dr. Pat Camp.

Her doctoral work will use a mix-methods approach to explore the use of wearable technologies to support the care of Indigenous and non-Indigenous people living with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).

In her spare time, she enjoys going to parks, hiking, traveling, watching TV series, and playing board games.
