Research Interests

Inherited bleeding disorders including hemophilia, von Willebrand disease, rare coagulation factor deficiencies and hereditary platelet function disorders illustrate the consequence of both known and unknown genetic mutations in various coagulation proteins and platelet biological mechanisms. Medical care for these disorders is specialized and multidisciplinary. In British Columbia, I have had the opportunity to recently join the Provincial Adult Hemophilia and Bleeding Disorders Comprehensive Care program at St. Paul’s Hospital. I am interested in providing optimal clinical care to this unique group of patients and pursuing both clinical and translational research to 1) further our understanding of the coagulation system, especially in bleeding disorders that are less well defined, 2) improve the treatments available to those with bleeding disorders, 3) appreciate how aging impacts those with inherited bleeding disorders such as hemophilia.
