About Me

I am an infectious diseases clinician and researcher with an interest in emerging fungal infections, immune compromised hosts, and global health. I attended medical school at the University of Manitoba, followed by Internal Medicine training at Queen's University and Infectious Diseases residency at the University of Manitoba.

My research training includes a PhD in Medical Sciences from the University of Antwerp in Belgium, for research based in South Africa focused on clinical and environmental aspects of a novel fungus described as Emergomyces africanus. Following this, I undertook a research fellowship at the San Antonio Center for Medical Mycology in Texas.
