About Me

As a Surgical Design Simulationist at the Institute for Reconstructive Sciences in Medicine, I am continually looking for new approaches to facilitate and improve pathways in surgical design and simulation with a main focus in head and neck reconstruction. I use CAD/CAM techniques to simulate surgeries and to create surgical guides to be used in the OR. I have a background in Industrial Design, which has helped me to transition into the surgical design world. I am also an adjunct professor at the University of Alberta in the Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine, where I teach courses in SDS.
