A bit about me

in vitroI am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences. I received my Ph.D. from the University of Alberta (2003) in the general area of cell biology and physiology; more specifically, my doctoral research focused on the reproductive physiology of ticks (yes, the blood-sucking arthropods!). Following the completion of my doctorate, I spent two and a half years as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Medical Microbiology and Immunology where I studied the interaction of various cell-surface proteins that are found on T-cells. I began teaching part-time at Grant MacEwan University (then still a college) in 2007 and became a full-time instructor in 2009.

You can find more information about my teaching, including the courses that I teach at MacEwan, here.
