Undergraduate Degrees: Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy
MSc Thesis Research: The present generation is often described as the “laziest” in Canada relative to previous cohorts. My thesis research is examining this assumption by focusing on the ways in which age influences sedentary behaviour, and its health impacts, across the life course. More generally I am examining the ways in which physical activity may be enhanced across populations to prevent and manage disease, and to reduce premature mortality. My supervisor for this quantitative thesis is Dr. Olu Awosoga.
Career Goals: My goal is to work as a pharmacist who is informed by a strong background in applied public health research, policy, and practice. I am passionate about the use of non-medicinal therapies, such as physical activity, in the prevention and treatment of disease, and in palliative care.
