I am a recent graduate in the Translational and Molecular Medicine program at the University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Medicine. Throughout my studies I have gained research experience and received academic scholarships at the national and international level. I strive to remain involved in the community as a women of colour, a francophone and lover of all things scientific. In the future, I hope to pursue a career in global health research working with underserved communities as a physician. I am currently completing my Masters degree in the department of Family Medicine at McGill University as a McCall MacBain scholar.
I am fully bilingual and completed my entire education in French.
I excelled in high school maths with a 90% average.

I worked to isolate a new bacteriophage from local soil samples. I pursued the project by annotating genomes applying bioinformatics tools.
Involved in a project that investigates the role of apoptosis inhibitors of macrophages on promoting necroptotic cell death in foam cells. This project will extend into my Honours Thesis. I am have presented this project at both the Annual Faculty of Medicine Research Day and the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS).

The MSc in Family Medicine: Global Health Concentration is a thesis option graduate program designed to provide research training in the areas of global primary health care delivery and policy, as well as “global in local” primary care that recognizes the diverse needs of multi-cultural, vulnerable and underserved populations in Canada.
Translational and molecular medicine is an area of research that coordinates the application of novel discoveries in biological sciences to practical applications in pharmaceutical or clinical settings. This innovative undergraduate program incorporates clinical observations and questions into scientific approaches designed to improve human health and longevity by facilitating new diagnostic tools and treatments.
