How can we create tangible global-scale impact on human health?
I’m currently a doctoral researcher with over 6 years of graduate-level clinical research experience trying to answer this question every day.
I’ve had the opportunity of direct mentorship from a broad range of brain scientists at the University of Calgary and McGill University, ranging from social psychologists to neurologists. Through these mentorships, I’ve learned to:
– Source high quality medical science information
– Critically evaluate information
– Identify current gaps in scientific knowledge
– Conduct clinical research with methodological rigour and ethical compliance
– Analyse and interpret data
– Communicate research findings to diverse audiences
It has become clear to me that the applications of high quality medical science research reach far beyond academia. I’ve become enthusiastic to help research get from academia to market.
Equipped with PMI and other management courses, I co-founded the Health Innovation Initiative and assumed executive positions in McGill’s student government. In these roles, I’ve successfully led several innovation and entrepreneurship events attended by 600+ students and members of the broader Montreal community through a combination of bootstrapping, grants, and corporate fund-raising.
I have also demonstrated passion for the intersections of Mental Health, Technology, and Entrepreneurship through my involvement in numerous local and international extra-curricular projects in areas diverse as mental health of incarcerated youth to “intelligence testing” of artificial intelligence systems.
I offer my academic expertise in neuropsychology and human brain functioning to the industry development of health technologies, artificial intelligence, and social innovations for impactful global mental health applications.
Interests: Adviser, consultant, medical science liaison, medical writer, regulatory affairs official, application scientist.
