Title: Graduate Students’ Union (GSU) Representative
I grew up in North York, ON and received my Honours Bachelor of Science at the University of Toronto with a major in Neuroscience and a double minor in Physiology and Sociology. I’m currently a Masters candidate at the Institute of Medical Science and work at the Toronto Western Research Institute under the supervision of Dr. Michael Fehlings. My research focuses on targeting the multifaceted nature of spinal cord injury via genetically modified neural progenitor cells, ultimately generating a microenvironment permissive for functional recovery. Outside of work, I enjoy playing guitar, going to concerts, and spending time outdoors in nature.
