scientist. feminist. activist.
I am a Ph.D. candidate in Pathology at Dalhousie University (Halifax, NS, Canada). My research focuses on understanding how and why different patients with cancer respond to different anti-cancer drugs. I have a B.Sc. in Microbiology & Immunology from the University of British Columbia.
I advocate for gender equality to challenge what is traditionally male or female and allow a dynamic continuum of gender identity and expression – supporting unique identities and experience that are shaped by our families, our past, our culture, our class. Until all of us have made it, none of us have made it.
Social change happens when people become uncomfortable with the status quo. I promise every week to take action for a better world. I start & contribute to conversations on equity, diversity, and inclusion.
you’ll find content here that ties together each of these roles with my own personal experience – from science to volunteerism to everyday #selfcare.
