Bio Brief

I have been working at SickKids for the last 8 years and have developed an interest in caring safely and improving patient outcomes. I am currently in the process of expanding my interests with my enrolment in the Translational Research Program at University of Toronto. The Translational Research Program provides its students with tools to improve health care through innovation and collaboration. With the completion of this program, I will incorporate my knowledge to SickKids and, hopefully to my research interests, such as, the microbiome and the effects of climate change to our health.
