I am a passionate and engaging presenter and have been successful in several science communication competitions such as FameLab, Amplify Ignite and Three Minute Thesis. I speak about my research on hepatitis C virus, HIV, injecting drug use and incarceration and can tailor my talks to any audience- please visit the contact page to inquire about my availability.
I am available for comment on issues related to Sexually Transmitted and Blood-Borne infections such as HIV or syphilis, as well as hepatitis C virus treatment and elimination. Particularly with regards to marginalized populations such as people who are incarcerated, people who inject drugs, or people who are unstably housed. Previous interviews can be found here.
I acknowledge that I am an uninvited white settler living on the Traditional, Unceded, Ancestral, & Continually Occupied territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-waututh) Nations.
