How I can help



I am an early career researcher actively developing an international research agenda focused on testing and evaluating solutions to address global One Health challenges, including zoonoses, antimicrobial resistance, and food and water safety. I completed postdoctoral training in science policy at the Public Health Agency of Canada (2022-23; funded by Mitacs) and doctoral training in public health at the University of Guelph (2017-2022; funded by CIHR).

I also work as a research and evaluation consultant, both independently and with various consulting firms. Throughout my career, I have successfully completed 22 consulting projects centered on health and other development topics, spanning across Canada and worldwide. My particular focus lies in integrating equity and climate change considerations into program design and assessment. I explored this area during my doctoral research and am now extending these efforts in my ongoing research and practice. I am dedicated to high-quality evaluation and I hold a Credentialed Evaluator designation from Canada.

I have collaborated with partners and clients to publish findings in high-impact journals including One Health, Global Food Security, Environmental Research Letters, and Evaluation. I care about making complex ideas accessible and have written complementary research notes, policy briefs, and pieces to popular audiences. My goal is to continue supporting organizations in applying evidence-informed strategies to address global health challenges in equitable and environmentally sustainable ways.
