Profile

I am a first-year student in the international development studies stream of the MPH program. My research interests lie mainly within the realm of epidemiology, parasitology, and global health. I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Guelph. In my final year of study, I spent a semester living in Kampala, Uganda where I took courses in international relations at Makerere university. During my time abroad I interned at the Makerere University-Johns Hopkins University Research Collaboration working on a project with malaria. In my spare time, I enjoy collecting houseplants, powerlifting, cooking, and camping.
