Research Interests

I completed my BSc at the University of Ottawa in Biology and Molecular Biology, and then worked as a technician for two years in a research program looking at rare disease, where I gained considerable experience with animal models and drug screening. My graduate research in the Duncan lab is focused on developing high-content, fluorescence microscopy-based kinome and GPCR screens to identify calcium signaling pathways and effectors involved in cell-cell fusion.
