Research Assistant, GEMINI
My role with the GEMINI team:
In my role as Research Assistant, I work with members of the Research Operations and Data teams to submit research ethics applications, recruit patients, and coordinate schedules.
My educational background:
In my bachelor’s, I explored genetic detection methods for aquatic pathogens in salmon aquaculture. My experience with research in my master’s degree involved using plants to remediate contaminated legacy sites. Lastly, I have three years’ experience as a teaching assistant, helping students understand how human health is impacted by industrial activities in various ecological systems.
My past experience and accomplishments:
I received my Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Marine Biology with a minor in French from Dalhousie University. I am a candidate for a Master’s of Environmental Studies from Queen’s University.
I feel most inspired when:
I am tending to my garden!
A few of my favourite things are:
Early morning walks with my labrador retriever puppy
Baking (and eating) sourdough
Listening to podcasts
