I completed by bachelor’s degree at the University of Toronto, St. George with a double major in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology and Peace, Conflict & Justice Studies. I also received a minor in Biology, offered jointly with the National University of Singapore.


I am currently a graduate student in the Laboratory of Viral Zoonotics, and Prof. Jonathan Heeney and Dr. Barbara Blacklaws are my supervisors. My research focuses broadly on understanding the transmission of zoonotic viruses and immune correlates of protection. I am studying the transmission of Lassa virus from rodents to humans, as well as the correlates of protection in humans for SARS-Cov-2.


My primary interest is understanding the ways in which humans are exposed to viruses of zoonotic origin, and what viral and immune parameters protect individuals from progressing to disease.
