scientist. feminist. conversationalist.

scientist.
I am a postdoctoral fellow at Simon Fraser University (Burnaby, BC). My research focuses on understanding how and why different patients with cancer respond to different anti-cancer drugs. I have a PhD in Pathology from Dalhousie University and a BSc in Microbiology & Immunology from the University of British Columbia.

feminist.
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.

conversationalist.
I am passionate about sharing my passions! I speak enthusiastically about science, feminism, and the power of youth.

you’ll find content here that ties together each of these roles with my own personal experience – from science to volunteerism to everyday #selfcare.
