I am an analytics and scientific research consultant, specializing in machine learning and data modelling, experimental design, micro-fabrication, and molecular biology.  I am currently consulting on two projects in the Morton lab: developing novel numerical methods for modelling and fitting delay-discounting data, and designing correlation and distance metrics to assess the relationship between structural connectivity and functional dynamics of the brain.
I have a multidisciplinary background in engineering, biology, and public policy; I have a BASc in Nanotechnology Engineering from the University of Waterloo, an MASc in Biomedical Engineering from the University of British Colombia, and an MPhil in Technology Policy from the University of Cambridge.  My research interests are broad and include structural policies for innovation and entrepreneurship, science policy, microfabricated biosensors and diagnostics, microbial population dynamics, modelling behaviour, and functional dynamics of the brain.
