Dr. Raywat Deonandan is an epidemiologist, author, journalist, and global health specialist. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Health Sciences, and formerly the Chief Scientific Advisor to the Canadian federal agency, Assisted Human Reproduction Canada.

Dr. Deonandan currently sits on the Boards of Directors of both Harbourfront Centre (in Toronto) and the Canadian Society for Epidemiology & Biostatistics (CSEB), is the Editor of the CSEB's national newsletter, and maintains a regular blog with The Huffington Post Canada. He is also the founder, academic advisor, and Executive Editor of the Interdisciplinary Journal of Health Sciences, the peer-reviewed journal of the students of the Interdisciplinary School of Health Sciences.
