I received my Bachelor of Honors Health Sciences and Master of Biomedical Technology degrees from the University of Calgary in 2015 and 2016 respectively, with the bulk of my research in the realm of neuroregeneration, which had been previously thought to be limited to the PNS. Relatively recent work has shown that the CNS also exhibits some capacity to heal as well. However, due to the complex nature of the brain, healing from injury and the changes to normal brain function that accompanies it are currently not well understood. I hope to elucidate some of the mechanisms by which healing from traumatic brain injury leads to aberrations in normal brain function, particularly electrographic disorders such as epilepsy, and the implications that these phenomena have for the developing brain. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, snowboarding, hockey, football, reading, and photography.
