Short Bio:

I earned my BSc degree in Cell Biology & Genetics at University of British Columbia in 2007 and medical degree at McMaster University (Hamilton, ON) in 2012. After graduating from medical school, I returned to Vancouver to pursue a residency in Hematopathology at UBC. I worked at St. Paul’s Hospital prior to joining the VGH Hematopathology group. Some of my interests and projects I worked on in the past include: minimal residual disease assessment of B-lymphoblastic leukemia using flow cytometry with Dr. Suzanne Vercauteren at BC Children’s Hospital and exploring the prognostic roles of chromosomal microarray and next generation sequencing in myelodysplastic syndromes with Dr. Aly Karsan at BCCA. I was also involved in the regional bone marrow quality improvement initiatives at Vancouver General Hospital.
