Meet our Mentors
I graduated from University of Waterloo in 2011 with a degree in Computer Science. I have been working as a Software Developer since 2011. I am interested in software performance analysis and previously worked on a Java Just in Time (JIT) Compiler at IBM. I am currently working at Elastic.
Department of Biology
As a graduate student in a plant community ecology lab, I study the light environment of grasslands and species responses to shading. Outside of the lab, I care for one hamster and my growing houseplant collection, and like to explore the great outdoors by foot, snowshoe, canoe, or paddleboard.
Department of Neuroscience
I graduated from Queen’s University in 2020 with a degree in the life sciences focusing in molecular biology and genetics. I am currently pursuing a Master’s and PhD doing research in developing gene therapy approaches to treating genetically inherited neurological disorders. I am excited to be entering a brand new filed of pharmaceuticals for treating rare diseases in the future. Outside of the lab, I enjoy going for hikes and cuddling with my dog.
Clinical Trials Monitor
Canadian Cancer Trials Group
I am a clinical trials monitor ensuring protocol compliance of phase III cancer clinical trials (breast, glioblastoma and prostate). I obtained a Ph.D in Biomedical and Molecular Sciences (Queen's University) and a B.Sc. in Life Sciences specializing in Drug Development and Human Toxicology. In my free time I enjoy the outdoors by running and hiking and I also love painting and gaming!
Department of Biomedical and Molecule Science
I recently graduated from Queen’s University with a BHSc in Life Sciences and am currently pursuing a Master’s in Reproduction and Developmental sciences at Queen’s. I am passionate about studying the placenta and its role in maternal and fetal health. When I’m not in the lab, I enjoy hiking, cooking and drawing.
Department of Biomedical and Molecular Sciences
I am a PhD student in Experimental Medicine studying components of blood plasma and how they have the potential to impact stem cells. I have always loved sciences and am excited to tell you guys more about my transition from high school to University.
Department of Biology
My research uses a combined wet-lab and computational approach to better understand how proteins function in diseased and healthy cells. During a typical workday you can find me synthesising biomolecules at the lab bench, or programming a machine learning algorithm with the data I’ve collected. During my spare time I play video games on PC or console, read comics/poetry/novels, bake (gluten free!), or play with my dog Ramen Noodle the golden doodle
Department of Health Science
Upstate Medical University
I graduated with a BScH and MSc from Queen's University, where I worked out of the Cancer Research Institute with a focus on molecular sub-typing in muscle-invasive bladder cancer. I gained a love for all things pathology and research through this work, which has led me to the next chapter of my career becoming a clinician-scientist! Outside of school and the lab, I enjoy painting, drawing, soccer, and playing music!
