Scientist & Associate Director of Operations

Brief Bio:

I am currently a Scientist at The Wilson Centre, and Associate Professor in the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the University of Toronto. I completed my PhD in cognitive psychology with a primary interest in categorization and human memory. My research focus over the last ten years has been understanding the integration of basic and clinical sciences in clinical reasoning. I use theories from cognitive psychology to understand the mental processes and structures that underpin expertise across the health professions.

Research Interests:
