I am currently an assistant professor in the Department of Family and Community Medicine, with a cross-appointment to the Dalla Lana School of Public Health in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto. I have an affiliation with the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research as a Scientific Associate. I am also a mentor in the Health care, Technology and Place program located at the University of Toronto.

My research focuses on three main areas: knowledge translation, cancer health services research and networks to support these activities. Some of these efforts include the use of collaborative learning theories and Web 2.0 applications such as wikis and other social networking tools. Other areas of expertise involve means of depicting credibility in web-based health content. I specialize in a variety of techniques designed to improve quality and performance of knowledge translation networks including both quantitative and qualitative measures as well as usability testing.
