He graduated from UofT’s undergraduate program as a double specialist in Pharmacology and Toxicology. He is currently co-supervised by Dr. Ruth Ross of the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, as well as Dr. Walter Swardfager of the Sunnybrook Research Institute. Currently, his research focuses on the orphan G-protein coupled receptor, GPR55, which is described as an atypical cannabinoid receptor and its relationship to Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) phenotypes. Specifically, he is interested in GPR55’s interplay with AD biomarkers, brain neurodegeneration and cognitive ability. His research experience ranges from cellular work, imaging, animal behaviour studies and most recently, clinical data analysis utilising longitudinal data gathered from the Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative.
