I am currently a medical student at the University of British Columbia with interests in the neurosciences, radiology, and critical care.
Following my Bachelor's in Kinesiology at UBC, I completed a PhD in Experimental Medicine with the support of the Vanier and Killam Scholarships. In 2022, I was a Visiting Scholar at Center for Brain Circuit Therapeutics at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School.
Outside of academia I can generally be found on a bike, in the mountains, or making something (beer, furniture, shoes, etc).
I am primarily interested in using meta-analysis and quantitative neuroimaging to understand brain-behaviour relationships, prognosticate outcome after injury, and identify therapeutic targets.
My thesis work included the first meta-analysis on the prevalence of traumatic brain injury among individuals living in homelessness. We also used longitudinal neuroimaging to evaluate how the health of people who are homeless is affected by brain injury over time. As a Visiting Scholar in Boston, I used network mapping to evaluate brain circuits linked to substance use disorder.
I am currently working on how we can use advanced neuroimaging to prognosticate outcome after traumatic brain injury.
