Research Interests

My research focuses on interventions related to polypharmacy, safe and effective prescribing, and medication rationalization. A number of my studies relating to the appropriate use of hospital resources, tests and investigations have been published in high impact peer-reviewed journals and several relating to safer prescribing in older adults were featured recently in the media. I supervise postgraduate students in the field of medication safety and have received funding from the CIHR, the Centre for Ageing and Brain Health Innovation, the Canadian Frailty Network and, locally, from the McGill Interdisciplinary Initiative in Infection and Immunity (MI-4).
