I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Calgary, where I hold joint appointments in the Departments of Geomatics Engineering and Biomedical Engineering. My research centers on leveraging digital health, machine learning, and geographic information science to create context-aware technological solutions for healthcare. This cross-disciplinary effort, to this date, has resulted in innovative techniques to study people in the context of their everyday environments and new insights into the relationship between mobility behaviours and cognitive functions. One of my key goals is to explore how a human-centric approach to machine learning can improve the detection, diagnosis, monitoring, and treatment of health issues, including dementia. In particular, my current research interests include investigating the role of automobile technology and driving behaviours in older adults and individuals with dementia. Prior to joining the University of Calgary, I obtained my PhD in Biomedical Engineering and my bachelor’s degree in Engineering Science (Aerospace Minor) from the University of Toronto.
