I’m a grad student at the University of Toronto where I study the genetic mechanisms governing male and female flower development in Cannabis sativa.

I’m passionate about science communication and have been writing about science for a general audience for the U of T student newspaper and other student club publications since 2018. A few of my scicomm rants have also appeared in The Globe & Mail’s Letters to the Editor section.
