I am a qualitative health researcher who examines ethically complex areas of primary care.


My work focuses on a variety of health polices which have social and ethical implications, such as prenatal testing for disability, cannabis consumption in pregnancy or medical assistance in dying.


I conduct this research in the context of academic primary care, through the Department of Family Medicine at McMaster University. I mainly use qualitative research approaches, using both primary and secondary data.
