I received my PhD in Biology from the University of Waterloo in 2000 and my BSc in Biology from Wilfrid Laurier University in 1995.
Prior to joining Laurier, I was a postdoctoral fellow at Rutgers University, Newark, NJ, and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (2000-2004).
The overall focus of my research is to understand the mechanism of targeting and import of proteins into chloroplasts as a model for intracellular protein trafficking. We use a combination of molecular biology, biochemistry and biophysical approaches to understand the structural and functional details of the chloroplast protein import machinery.
I have on-going opportunities in my research lab for undergraduate and graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows, who are interested in cell biology, plant biology, molecular biology, and protein biochemistry research.
