Biography

I am a Vanier Scholar pursing a doctoral degree in Epidemiology in the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Canada. My research focuses on infectious disease epidemiology, including COVID-19, antimicrobial resistance, and antimicrobial stewardship. I am advised by Dr. David Fisman in the Epidemiology Division and Dr. Kevin Brown at Public Health Ontario.

I completed my master’s degree in epidemiology in 2018 at McGill University under the supervision of Dr. David Buckeridge, who leads the Surveillance Lab in McGill University’s Clinical and Health Informatics research group, and Dr. Caroline Quach at the University of Montréal.
