Targeted drug delivery is a state of the art drug delivery technique used to treat cancerous tumours and cardiovascular pathologies. This technique uses arterial imaging data and numerical haemodynamic predictions to determine the best injection site that maximizes the number of nano-particles reaching the targeted tumour. To predict the optimal drug administration site, TDD relies on numerical models and methods able to describe at reasonable computational costs the extremely complex transport of nano-drugs.

My research focuses on injury prevention and mobility enhancement in older adults. During my PhD, I sought to understand the circumstances of falls and factors associated with risk for injuries. My current postdoc research involves two projects. The first project was supported by MITACS, which aimed to survey existing evidence (through literature synthesis and electronic surveys to recreational therapists) on the effectiveness of recreation therapy programs in enhancing mobility outcomes (e.g., physical activity, performance of daily activities, falls) for residents in long-term care.
