About Me

A bit about me: Most recently I completed a NSERC and CIFAR Global Scholars postdoc at UBC in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology. Prior to that I obtained my PhD from the Joint Program at MIT and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) in Geology and Geophysics, a MSc at the U of A in EAS and the Department of Biological Sciences, and a BScH at Queen's University in Environmental Biology. 

Please see my lab webpage for more information about me and my research:
