You were involved with the Alberta MS Network (endMS) during your time as a PhD student at the University of Alberta. For you, what was the most beneficial aspect of the Network?
It was a great experience to get involved with the Alberta MS Network during my PhD at the University of Alberta between 2010-2015. The Network helped me to connect with other MS researchers, and to learn the updates on MS research being done at the universities across Alberta through the regular seminars/webinars and the yearly endMS retreats.
Can you tell us a little more about your current position and the work you are doing?
I have been working as a Research AssistantProfessor in Neurology at the University of Rochester, NY, USA since January2019. My research focuses on the advancement of brain MRI techniques andtheir applications towards several neurological disorders including MultipleSclerosis, HIV, Cerebral Small Vessel Disease, Stroke, Parkinson’s Disease andHypertension. Before moving toRochester, I worked as a Research Associate & Manitoba NeuroimagingPlatform Coordinator in Radiology at the University of Manitoba where Iconducted brain MRI research on multiple sclerosis.
Do you have any advice for our trainees?
Alberta MS Network is a great platform to interact with MS researchers across Alberta, so involvement with the Network would be beneficial in terms of learning new things, communicating with peers, experts, clinicians, stakeholders, and getting new ideas for your future goals.
