Alex recently completed her Bachelor of Health Science degree with a major in biomedical sciences at the University of Calgary. Her thesis project studied the effect of inflammatory agents on immune cells important in inflammatory bowel disease pathology. Alex was a summer student at W21C for the past two years and is currently assisting Dr. Doreen Rabi and Julie Babione on two digital health research projects. The aim of these projects is to learn about the benefits as well as challenges of conducting digital health research, and potential strategies that can be used to overcome these challenges in future research projects. Her general research interests revolve around understanding the patient experience of individuals living with chronic conditions. Outside of work Alex likes to hike, camp, and cook.
