About The Author

I am an Assistant Professor at the Département de mathématiques et de statistique at the Université de Montréal, and an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Physiology at McGill University. I received my PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences from the Faculté de pharmacie at the Université de Montréal, and was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Program for Evolutionary Dynamics at Harvard University.

Broadly speaking, I work in quantitative medicine. My research is focused on constructing mechanistic mathematical models of physiological systems combined with drug models to optimize treatment strategies. My current projects include various studies of hematopoietic stem cell and neutrophil dynamics in health and disease, PBPK/PD models of antiretroviral drugs to support the design of a novel sustained-release delivery device for improved HIV treatment design and HIV cure strategies, and immunological network theory.


How Platelet Regulation Varies In Humans With Cyclic Thrombocytopenia

Making all of the blood cells in your body is no small feat. Every day, the hematopoietic system produces over 100 billion blood cells, just over the total number of neurons in the human brain or around the number of stars in the Milky Way. For most people, the blood system works without any issues in production their whole lives. This isn’t surprising given the robust feedback mechanisms that exist to ensure that about the same number of each type...
