I am currently employed as a Postdoctoral Fellow at Le Groupe de Recherche sur le Système Nerveux Central (GRSNC), Departement de Physiologie, Universite de Montreal. I am investigating the contribution of supraspinal structures in the production of anticipatory and compensatory postural responses in cats. I have a range of experience as a scientist, organizer, liaison, athlete and musician. My PhD dissertation, submitted to the Department of Kinesiology at the University of Waterloo, examined exercise, shear stress, and flow-mediated dilation of human conduit arteries. I have also been involved in CSA/ESA/NASA funded research examining simulated micro-gravity and its effect on orthostatic tolerance, blood pressure regulation, and cerebral blood flow. In 2005 I was part of a team of international researchers in the Women International Space Simulation for Exploration at l’Institut de Médecine et de Physiologie Spatiales in Toulouse, France examining the cardiovascular effects of long term simulated micro-gravity exposure . I am also involved in ongoing research in the area of human exploration of Mars, which led me to spend two weeks at the Mars Desert Research Station (MDRS) in Utah, USA as part of Mars Society Canada's Expedition Alpha. Inspired in my mid 20s by the visionary writings of Dr. Timothy Leary and Robert Anton Wilson, I set aside my youthful dream of becoming a rock star and went back to school to get a science degree (Exercise Science, Concordia University, Montreal).
