Research Interests

Our lab examines the causes and consequences of heterogeneity in risks of acquisition and transmission of infectious diseases across epidemic contexts. Our work is centered on data-driven transmission (epidemic) modeling and epidemiology embedded in programs that serve communities, and in partnership with communities. Our area of research is centered around HIV and other STIs, and spans domestic and global health partnerships. We welcome supervision of DLSPH PhD students interested in observational epidemiology (esp causal inference), bias analyses, and statistical and transmission modeling with a focus on heterogeneity and health disparities in epidemics of HIV and other STIs.

I am an Infectious Disease physician and Infectious Disease Epidemiologist/Modeler. After completing clinical training at University of Toronto, I conducted my MSc (Modern Epidemiology) and PhD (Mathematical Epidemiology) at Imperial College, and am now based at St. Michael’s Hospital (Unity Health Toronto) as a Clinician Scientist and Associate Professor at the Department of Medicine. I hold a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Mathematical Modeling and Program Science.
