Academic Background

B.Sc. Environmental Chemistry, University of Waterloo
M.Sc. Biology, University of Western Ontario


My B.Sc. thesis focused on the organic synthesis of ellagitannins, and was conducted under the supervision of Dr. Khanbabaee at the University of Paderborn. As an M.Sc. student, I studied the interactions between shallow groundwater carbon and soil carbon dioxide production along a forested slope in Northern Ontario. My M.Sc. thesis work was supervised by Dr. Creed (research published in Biogeochemistry). 

As the Instrumentation Technician in the Faculty of Science, I support faculty and student research activities by:

  • maintaining multi-user instruments,
  • developing standard operating procedures for instrument use,
  • teaching new users how to safely and effectively use equipment, and
  • repairing or coordinating the repair of a wide variety of research equipment.

I am currently on campus on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Please see my calendar for details.

Please see the side menu for instrument training requirements and to access standard operating procedures.
