I am 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. Currently I am also a Visiting Scholar at the Center for Brain Circuit Therapeutics at the Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston under the supervision of Dr. Michael Fox.
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 research interests are focused on using advanced neuroimaging techniques to evaluate brain-behaviour relationships. My thesis work focuses on using neuroimaging and longitudinal statistical analysis to evaluate how the health of people who are homeless or precariously housed is affected by traumatic brain injury. I have worked extensively with quantitative structural neuroimaging and am currently working on applying network mapping techniques in substance use, addiction, and traumatic brain injury.
