I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Stanford University in the lab of Dr. Erin Gibson. I completed my PhD at the Institute of Medical Science in the University of Toronto (2018), under the supervision of Dr. Michael Fehlings, where my thesis was focused on the peripheral inflammatory response in neurotrauma and application of immunomodulatory cell therapies to target this pathology. I subsequently spent two years as a Postdoctoral Scholar at the Sue & Bill Gross Stem Cell Research Center, University of California-Irvine (UCI), transplanting various sources of neural stem cells for traumatic brain injury. During this time, I expanded my interest in the activation of endogenous progenitors as an alternative to cell transplantation for therapeutic purposes.
