I am committed to advancing a culturally compassionate digital health research agenda that champions the use of technology to support minority communities realize equitable health outcomes.

As the Director of Evaluation and Research at Stepped Care Solutions, the Director and Principal Investigator of the Centre for Global eHealth Innovation at UHN, and a health services researcher by training, I conduct collaborative research across the continuum of digital health innovation, from ideation through to impact. My program of research focuses on building novel digital therapeutics to support patients and families manage the impact of chronic disease on their health and wellbeing. In recent years, I have expanded my portfolio to focus on family-centered digital health for older ethnic adults and their family caregivers. My clinical interests lie in the digitally-mediated management of chronic conditions, particularly heart failure, asthma, cancer survivorship, and mental health.

I lead an all-star research team to design, develop, evaluate, and implement evidence-based innovations that aim to bridge the digital divide in Canada and reflect the transcultural health and social needs of all Canadians.
