I received my PhD in Epidemiology and Biostatistics from the University of Western Ontario in 2014 and an Honors Bachelor in Health Sciences (Minor: Anthropology) from the University of Western Ontario in 2007. After my PhD studies, I worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the HIV Prevention Lab in the Department of Psychology at Toronto Metropolitan University over 2014-2016, under Dr. Trevor Hart. Prior to joining the Department of Health Sciences in 2017, I worked as a Public Health Epidemiologist with the Middlesex-London Health Unit in London, Ontario.
The main focus of my research is on population and community health and research methods. Specifically, my research explores health issues as they differ according to sexual orientation and gender identities. These include access to health care services, chronic conditions and infectious conditions such as HIV and other sexually-transmitted infections. My research covers the spectrum of these health issues as they relate to populations, families, communities, and individuals. I also work with various community representatives on community-based research initiatives which assist underserved populations conduct rigorous community- and policy-relevant research.
