• In a nutshell, I'm a researcher at heart.

    In addition to my genomics research, I've led different science outreach, policy and communication initiatives to help build an engaging and inclusive science culture. This includes science writing & editing, public speaking and developing training resources. Every now and then, I speak about different aspects of science, or lead a workshop related to science communication. Feel free to reach out!

    I currently wear two hats, and hold four volunteer/service roles:

    Research Analyst, Epilepsy Genetics Clinic

    As a genomics researcher, I analyze DNA (specifically, whole genome sequencing data) from individuals with epilepsies.

    I am currently leading projects to review federal scientific integrity guidelines, and follow-up on the recommendations from the Fundamental Science Review. Read more here.

    Our mandate includes providing accurate and balanced views to the Chief Science Advisor from the perspective of youth, and identifying and informing the Chief Science Advisor on key issues and challenges facing the Canadian science community.

    Leadership Team Member, 500 Women Scientists (500WS)

    500WS is a non-profit organization which serves society by making science open, inclusive, and accessible and transform society by fighting racism, patriarchy, and oppressive societal norms. I am leading a project to help address the pay gap, and co-hosting Wikipedia Edit-A-Thons to create and expand the biographies available for women and gender minority scientists.

    Trainee Board Member, Canadian Society for Molecular Biosciences (CSMB)

    Our mandate is to add value to the experience of trainee members of the CSMB by providing services and activities to benefit their careers.

    Advisory Board Member, ComSciConCAN

    Communicating Science (ComSciCon) is a workshop series organized by graduate students, for graduate students, focused on science communication skills. I serve on the advisory board for the ComSciCon Canada.
