Why do you do what you do? What motivates you to get up every morning and come to work?

It was only in the last few years that I realized there were many ways to improve people’s health and well-being. Technology is one such way, especially for its ability to empower individuals and disrupt (often outdated) systems. I’m excited to learn as much as I can at the Centre and to use technology to move closer to achieving equitable, fair and accessible health care for all.

What book, film, or piece of art would you like everyone to see?

I highly recommend the Discworld books by Terry Pratchett. That, and The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness.

What is your verb?

To pique (one’s curiosity). I enjoy learning about how and why people think the way they think or behave the way they do.
