I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Public Health and Health Systems at the University of Waterloo.
My research aims to understand and address the social and ecological determinants of global health and development. In particular, I am interested in how factors such as poverty, migration, food security, and climate change interact and shape health and development outcomes. I conduct research in close collaboration with community partners and organizations with the goal of co-producing information to support decision-making and action.
Key areas of research include migration and health, community food security, healthcare and social service access, and climate change and health. Regionally, I have worked in Central America, Southeast Asia, East Africa, and Canada.
I completed my PhD in Epidemiology and International Development Studies at the University of Guelph, Canada and a CIHR Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto.
