About

Short Bio

My research

I am investigating ultrasound-based methods for rewarming frozen biological tissues, with the eventual application being ultrasound-based rewarming of cryogenically preserved organs.

Education

I began my studies in the Integrated Science program at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada. In this program, I specialized in physics and biophysics, and wrote my undergraduate thesis on a simulation-based characterization of the elastic properties of different biological membranes.

I started my MSc in the Medical Biophysics department at the University of Toronto, researching methods for focusing ultrasound through the spine to the spinal cord. I reclassified to the PhD program in 2018.
