BiographyContactKeywordsAssociated Projects


Head of the Section of Pediatric Neurosciences at the University of Alberta, Stollery Children's Hospital. My research interests are in the area of Developmental Neurobiology. I have focussed predominantly in the area of birth injury and perinatal asphyxia. Currently developing models of developmental disability, and moving my research translationally, so that the knowledge we gain in the lab, can be applied to the prevention of disorders in humans.

The language and culture of my heritage is passed on to me orally. it's a different way off learning than how I am taught at school. How do I keep my traditional culture alive while learning to read and being immersed in the majority culture?

Reading is the core of learning and staying in school . improving reading skills with young Aboriginal children can open up the doors to future prospects.
