Salut! My name is Nigel. I was born and raised in Montréal, playing soccer, biking, and skiing the east coast mountains while completing undergrad at McGill University. The cycling became more serious when a couple friends and I set out across eastern Canada to raise relief funds for a local town that suffered a tragic train derailment. I headed south of the border to study medicine at Stony Brook University and completed Anesthesia residency at Mount Sinai in New York. When the Covid-19 pandemic interrupted elective surgeries and our lives, a few colleagues and I teamed up to convert consumer sleep apnea devices to accessible and scalable mechanical ventilation. After testing at Walter Reed, the blueprints were shared freely and put to use in several developing countries before being presented at the 2021 American Society of Anesthesiology conference. As a keen Stanford fellow, I look forward to the challenges of Pediatric Anesthesia training and west coast cycling.
