Research Assistant, GEMINI
My role with the GEMINI team:
In my role as Research Assistant, I work with the Research Operations team to submit research ethics board applications and recruit patients for GEMINI research studies.
My educational background:
I received my Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Marine Biology with a minor in French from Dalhousie University. I then completed a Master of Environmental Studies from Queen’s University.
My past experience and accomplishments:
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. I have experience as a teaching assistant, helping students understand how human health is impacted by industrial activities in various ecological systems.
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
Baking (and eating) sourdough
Training in taekwondo
