Hi! I am an inspiring implementation scientist and Ph.D. candidate in Interdisciplinary Studies. I have an undergraduate degree in molecular biology and biotechnology (BSc, University of Waterloo, 2008) and a master’s degree in epidemiology and global health (MPH, University of Toronto, 2012). I also earned the Credentialed Evaluator designation from the Canadian Evaluation Society (2015). From 2011-2016, I worked as an evaluation consultant in health and health care. I also co-owned a theatre company (Starfish Productions) where I experienced the magic of theatre firsthand. In my doctoral research, I am exploring how research-based theatre can foster public scholarship while increasing meaningful participation and reciprocity within health research. Other things I like to nerd out on include evaluative thinking, integrated knowledge translation, evolution, measurement in arts-based research, sustainability, and data science. I am also a scuba diver, camping enthusiast, craft beer maker, and lover of hole-in-the-wall restaurants.
