Hi everyone! I am a second-year Adult Infectious Diseases resident at the University of Toronto. I completed Internal Medicine training and medical school at the University of Toronto. I am currently pursuing a Master's of Medical Education part-time through the University of Dundee. My interests are in intersection of addictions, mental health, and the social determinants of health with infectious diseases, providing interdisciplinary care for patients, and incorporating health promotion strategies in care. I am interested in women's health as it relates to infectious diseases and HIV, and cardiac manifestations of infectious diseases.

My current project with the lab is synthesizing an international case series of myocarditis and pericarditis associated with mpox. Upcoming projects that I will be working on this year include an advanced HIV PrEP module for primary care providers, and updating a book chapter on women's health and herpes simplex virus infections.
