an implementation scientist and health services researcher, I work across disciplines and settings,
specializing in understanding how effective interventions can be
implemented, sustained, spread, and scaled. I work in partnership with lived experience advisors and health system decision makers to increase our impact.
I am a Scientist in the Office of Spread and Scale, and a member of the Implementation Science team at Women's College Hospital Institute for Health System Solutions and Virtual Care, and Assistant Professor (Status) with the Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation (IHPME), in the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto. The Office of Spread and Scale uses implementation science to help amplify successful models of care and innovative programs, while learning from the success of others.
As Associate Director (Innovation, Implementation & Impact) of the UK Need for Nutrition Education/Innovation Programme (NNEdPro) Global Institute for Food, Nutrition and Health, I support international initiatives and knowledge exchange in nutrition, relevant to clinical and public health practice for medical and health professionals.
From 2019-2021 I was a Postdoctoral Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR) Health System Impact Fellow with Women's College Hospital and the University of Toronto. I completed my PhD at the University of Waterloo in 2019, focused on improving nutrition care in Canadian hospitals.
