Personal Statement

My primary area of clinical and research interest lies in maternal-fetal transfusion medicine and women with hemostatic disorders, particularly patient blood management in women experiencing obstetric hemorrhage. My primary area of educational interest is in visual communication for medical education. I recently completed my MScBMC degree at the University of Toronto where my master's thesis project explored using the Animation Processing Model for developing didactic animations for medical students.
