Hi there! I am a health geographer at SFU. I conduct research in a variety of health fields like injury and trauma, infectious disease, and antibiotic resistance. While these may seem disparate, each project I take on ultimately examines how place and space are central to shaping human health. This theme serves as a guide for my work, helping me address new and challenging issues in the world of public health today.
