I am an intensivist interested in improving management of critically ill patients with a focus on respiratory failure using Bayesian methods, adaptive trials, and machine learning. My medical training has been in Toronto including internal medicine and critical care medicine. Before medicine I completed an undergraduate degree in mathematics. I am currently a PhD student in the Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation at the University of Toronto. Other research interests include motor vehicle trauma, causal inference from observational data in critical care medicine, and the impact of the social determinants of health on critical illness and end-of-life care.
