Research achievements

Research summary

My primary research focus is advancing precision oncology in the real-world environment.

I aim to use these findings to effectively and safely mitigate both the excessive and inadequate utilization of healthcare throughout the entire cancer control continuum, from prevention to end-of-life care and survivorship.

My methodological expertise is in pragmatic clinical trials, implementation science and health services research. I combine these methodological approaches to develop innovative methods of designing and conducting research and facilitate the seamless translation of research findings into real-world practice.


Brief biography

In addition to my clinical work as a surgical oncologist within CancerCare Manitoba and Shared Health, I dedicate an equal proportion of my time to advancing my research program.

I am an affiliate scientist at the Paul Albrechtsen Research Institute CancerCare Manitoba and an assistant professor of surgery at UM.

My research is embedded within the Health Services Research Lab in the Research Institute, where I work with a collaborative, multidisciplinary team composed of trainees, clinicians, clinician-scientists and scientists.
