Areas of expertise: 

I am currently exploring a cancer screening, prevention and promotion research agenda focusing on the modern cancers touching the Inuit population of Canada , also looking into the natural history of inflammatory bowel diseases in Quebec, and conducting pharmacovigilance studies using large data-banks to explore the exposure /disease relationship between commonly prescribed drugs (such as steroids, metformin, statins) and common diseases such as cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer and various infectious diseases.
