I received my PhD in Epidemiology and Biostatistics from the University of Western Ontario in 2014 and an Honors Bachelor in Health Sciences (Minor: Anthropology) from the University of Western Ontario in 2007. After my PhD studies, I worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the HIV Prevention Lab in the Department of Psychology at Ryerson University over 2014-2016, under Dr. Trevor Hart. Prior to joining the Department of Health Sciences, I worked as a Public Health Epidemiologist with the Middlesex-London Health Unit.
The main focus of my research is on population health and research methods. Additionally, my research explores various health issues as they differ according to sexual orientation and gender identities. These include access to health care services, chronic conditions and infectious conditions such as HIV and other sexually-transmitted infections. My research covers the span of these health issues as they relate to populations, families, communities, and individuals. I work with various community representatives on community-based research initiatives which assist underserved populations conduct rigorous community- and policy-relevant research.
I have volunteer research assistantship opportunities available for undergraduate students interested in my research areas.
