Thanks for visiting!
I’m an Assistant Professor in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the Drexel University Dornsife School of Public Health. I’m also an Affiliate Scientist in the Centre on Drug Policy Evaluation and Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute at St. Michael’s Hospital and an Adjunct Assistant Professor in Epidemiology and Biostatistics at Western University. I work with populations confronting stigma and oppression to understand and address the health impacts of inequitable social, policy, and healthcare environments. In particular, I conduct community-engaged and community-led research with trans people and people who use drugs in India, Canada, and the United States. Methodologically, I am interested in measurement and currently lead research evaluating survey measures of intersectional discrimination. I was originally trained in – and still conduct – HIV research, but am committed to addressing the wide range of health and health care inequities impacting the communities I work with.
I am from Toronto and currently live on Lenape land in Philadelphia.
