scientist. feminist. conversationalist.

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.

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.

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.
