I am a global health researcher who studies the social and ecological determinants of health. I conduct research in close collaboration with community partners and I prioritize the involvement and input of community partners throughout the research process.
My areas of research include: labour migration and health, community food security, rural livelihoods and agricultural development, and climate change and health.
I have experience working and conducting research in Central America, Sub-Saharan Africa, India, and Canada.
I currently hold a CIHR Fellowship in the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto and I am an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the School of Public Health and Health Systems at the University of Waterloo. As of May 1, 2018, I will be an Assistant Professor in the School of Public Health and Health Systems at the University of Waterloo.
I completed my PhD in Epidemiology and International Development Studies at the University of Guelph, Canada.
