ABOUT ME

I am a graduate student in Master of Health Science Informatics at Ontario Tech University. I have completed an undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences at OTU. Currently working on medical training simulations at Lakeridge Hospital under the supervision of Dr. Adam Dubrowski and in collaboration with education and health care experts. I incorporate my interest in 3D printing and knowledge in human anatomy to create the maxSIMbox - a portable simulations kit for training nursing, surgical, and emergency care students remotely with the assistance of Gamified Education Network(GEN) developed by maxSIMhealth lab.
