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. 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. My previous work at St. Paul Hospital and Vancouver General Hospital have equipped me with diverse skills in Hematopathology and Immunology, including flow cytometry, special coagulation, transplant immunology and histocompatibility testing.
