Associate Professor (Partner) PhD

Senior Scientist, Environmental Health Services, BC Centre for Disease



655 West 12th Avenue Vancouver, BC V5Z 4R4 Environmental Health Services, BC Centre for Disease Control


As the Senior Environmental Health Scientist at the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC), I lead a program of applied research and surveillance to support evidence-based policy for the province.

This role requires me to be a generalist rather than a specialist, and my work spans a wide range of topics including: air pollution from all provincially relevant sources (wildfire smoke, residential wood smoke, industry, road dust, shipping, and vehicles); extreme weather events; radon gas; food safety; water quality; and exposures managed by the Drug and Poison Information Centre (DPIC). Most of my work requires the collection, processing, integration, analysis, and communication of health and environmental data, for which I am a proficient and enthusiastic R user.
