I am a clinician-scientist and an Assistant Professor in the Departments of Medicine and Community Health Sciences at the University of Calgary. I completed my medical training in Internal Medicine in Calgary, an academic fellowship in General Internal Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Master of Public Health at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
My research interests include health services and public health research with a particular focus on refugee health and high-needs socially vulnerable populations. I co-lead a research program focused on the health and healthcare of recently resettled refugees, aylum claimants, and other newcomers inn Canada (www.RefugeeHealthYYC.ca).
