Academic Rank:
Clinical Associate Professor, UBC
Vancouver General Hospital
Short Bio:

I earned my undergraduate degree from the University of Cambridge, my medical degree from the University of Vienna and a PhD in Pathology and Laboratory Medicine from the University of British Columbia. After two years in medical genetics at the University of Innsbruck, Austria, I returned to UBC and completed specialist training in Neuropathology, followed by a fellowship in Neuromuscular Pathology at the UCL Institute of Neurology, Queen Square, London UK. I am a staff neuropathologist at VGH with special interest in myopathology and a lead role for the VGH Muscle Lab. My research has focussed on inflammatory myopathies and I see considerable potential to pursue this further at UBC. Outside work I spend most of my time with my family of four. I enjoy skiing, good music, and a good book.
