Research Focus

My research focuses on: primarily tuberculosis (TB), global health, indigenous health, implementation research. Methodology: epidemiology, implementation research. I am currently developing an implementation-focused research program that involves direct collaboration with organizations (e.g. public health departments, NGOs) working to address TB among marginalized/socially vulnerable populations in low/middle-income countries, additional research foci include respiratory diseases amongst Quebec's indigenous groups.
