Fellow in Artificial Intelligence Law & Ethics, York University, Canada

I am an Ontario lawyer, with a background in ethics. I am currently completing my PhD at Osgoode Hall Law School while holding a Fellowship in Artificial Intelligence Law and Ethics at the Centre for Computational Medicine at Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids). I also serve as a member of York University’s Artificial Intelligence and Society Task Force and as a member of the newly formed Artificial Intelligence in Medicine at SickKids (AIM@SK) Task Force.

My research brings my doctoral work in law, applied ethics and public sector governance to bear on the regulation of innovative and emerging technologies. I am particularly interested in the analysis of different challenges and concerns related to precision and personalized approaches to health care.

My academic work is also informed by my status as a rare disease patient, parent and advocate. I dedicate much of my time to raising awareness about the challenge of living with chronic illnesses and trying to find ways to help improve the lives of others. As part of my work in this space, I have joined the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) Research Ethics Board as a legal member and am a former member of the Board of Directors for the Canadian Organization for Rare Disorders (CORD).
