Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences


I am a nephrologist & early career clinician-researcher. I am currently undertaking a Kidney Transplant Research Fellowship in Vancouver, Canada under the supervision of Professor John Gill. My primary medical degree was completed at the University of Adelaide, Australia. I undertook my Basic Physician Training at Central Adelaide Local Health Network/University of Adelaide. I completed his Nephrology training at the Central and Northern Adelaide Renal & Transplantation Service, Vancouver General Hospital & St Paul’s Hospital, Vancouver. I am a fellow of the Australasian & New Zealand College of Physicians. I have completed fellowships in Advanced Nephrology and Kidney Transplantation at the University of British Columbia.

My research program will be focused on analysing kidney transplant demand, costing pre-kidney transplantation assessment, and developing novel referral pathways for patients with end-stage kidney disease. I am based within the UBC Kidney Transplant Research group and maintain close ties with the Australia and New Zealand Dialysis and Transplant Registry (ANZDATA). I am soon to complete my Master of Medicine (Clinical Epidemiology) through the University of Sydney, Australia.
