A lawyer and a social worker by training, I am currently an Associate Professor at the University of Ottawa's Faculty of Law (Common Law Section), located on the traditional, unceded and unsurrendered territory of the Algonquin Anishnaabeg. Subjects that I teach include public law, constitutional law, health law, and immigration and refugee law.
My research program leverages socio-legal studies, action research, and community engagement to critically examine health inequities experienced by marginalized groups, particularly international migrants, racialized minorities, and people living with HIV/AIDS.
Generally, the topics of my research and writing lie at the intersection between health law, immigration law, and human rights. They include, among others, social determinants of health, migrants' health care access and entitlement, border control of infectious diseases, and medical tourism.
