How did you get here?
I joined the the predecessor to OpenLab as I saw the potential with a team of highly motivated multidisciplinary individuals trying to innovate and improve health care. With a background in Computer Engineering, Internal Medicine and Clinical Epidemiology, I see the potential to develop and evaluate innovations that can advance patient care. I work primarily in the hospital taking care of medical inpatients, and I routinely see the many opportunities for improvement.
I am an Assistant Professor with the Department of Medicine at University of Toronto and general internist at the University Health Network. My training includes an undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering, a fellowship in Internal Medicine and a Master of Science in Clinical Epidemiology. My thesis was on the development and evaluation of a portal for patients with heart failure. The portal facilitated the active follow up of patients with heart failure in the community.
