Personal Statement
I am originally from Toronto and I earned a Honours B.Sc. at the University of Waterloo (ON, Canada) where I focused my studies on comparative animal physiology and evolution. I then completed a M.Sc at Saint Mary's University in Halifax (NS, Canada) in the research area of evolutionary developmental biology. This is where I learned to love the zebrafish vertebrate model organism, Danio rerio. After spending long hours researching zebrafish craniofacial development I decided that I wanted to continue working with this fish and moved into my current area of research. I am now working on my Ph.D. and my research is focused on controlling infectious diseases in laboratory zebrafish. In particular, I am interested in the control and management of zebrafish mycobacteriosis. Additionally, I have also gained experience working with murine cell culture as well as on molecular ecology projects.

Graduate Research Topic
Control of Infectious Diseases in Zebrafish (Danio rerio)

Favorite Quote
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. --Mark Twain
