I am an associate professor at McGill University. I study public health policy, ethics, and epistemology.
Scientific information is often thought to be objective, and scientific communication often aims to ‘let the data speak.’ I use a variety of methods, including conceptual analysis, quantitative reviews, and controlled experiments, to demonstrate that data are always ‘spoken for,’ in the sense that human beings influence and are influenced by how data are produced, aggregated, and communicated. My ultimate goal is to help individuals become more sophisticated producers and consumers of health information.
