I am a Vanier and Killam Scholar, and a PhD Candidate in the Experimental Medicine Program at the University of British Columbia under the supervision of Dr. William J. Panenka and Dr. William G. Honer.
Previously, I completed an undergraduate in Kinesiology at UBC and did my undergraudate research under the supervision of Jason J. Barton. I also spent a decade as a hockey referee in minor through Junior A and have led various outdoor trips (backcountry ski tours, mountain biking, and mountaineering) throughout the Pacific Northwest.
More recently, I co-founded Zero Block Society, a not-for-profit organization working to support harm reduction workers during the ongoing opioid crisis. Outside of my studies I can generally be found on a road bike or making my own carbs (bread, pasta, beer).
My work focuses on using advanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and longitudinal statistical analysis to evaluate how the health of people who are homeless or precariously housed is affected by traumatic brain injury. Our review and meta-analysis on the the topic was published in Lancet Public Health and received international media attention in outlets such as The Guardian, CBC, Global News, CTV, Gizmodo, The Daily Beast, Yahoo News, among others.
I have worked extensively with traditional structural neuroimaging (T1 and DTI), and I am currently working with connectomics as well as neurite orientation dispersion and density imaging (NODDI, pictured to the right).
In 2021 I will be joining the lab of Dr. Michael Fox to work on lesion and atrophy network mapping.
