Biographical Information

I was raised in a small town in New Brunswick, Canada and completed concurrent Science and Computer Science Bachelor's degrees at University of New Brunswick. My first taste of research was identifying retro-transposed genes in Drosophila melanogaster using bioinformatics. I then moved to Vancouver, BC to complete my PhD in identifying genomic islands in Bacteria and Archaea genomes under the supervision of Dr. Fiona Brinkman. My first post-doc for 2 years was with Dr. Jonathan Eisen at UC Davis working with the iSEEM group to develop better computational methods to analyze metagenomic datasets from the ocean. My second post-doc brought me back to the east coast at Dalhousie University in Halifax, N.S., Canada working with Dr. Rob Beiko and Dr. Ford Doolittle on the human microbiome. This led to the development of PICRUSt, a bioinformatics method to predict metagenomes from 16S surveys. I am now an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pharmacology at Dalhousie University studying human microbial interactions and their impact on health.
