About

I am now a Lecturer (equivalent of Assistant Professor) of Synthetic Biology in the Department of Chemistry and Biomolecular Sciences at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia. I started off my science career at the University of Alberta (Canada), working in the Casey and Michalak labs. Summer student work in the Casey Lab on the human sodium-bicarbonate co-transporter protein resulted in an authorship in a peer-reviewed publication. My honors project in the Michalak Lab had me determining the role of calcium signaling and calreticulin on murine embryonic stem cell differentiation. After achieving a B.Sc. (Honors) in Biochemistry in 2003 I went to the Beatty Lab at the University of British Columbia to start my Ph.D. While at UBC I discovered that a photosynthetic organism called Rhodobacter sphaeroides was capable of re-routing its chlorophyll biosynthetic machinery around a blockage to generate a new type of chlorophyll. November 2010 I was conferred a Ph.D in Microbiology and Immunology from UBC. I was a post-doc in Drew Endy's lab at Stanford University from Nov 2010 - June 2015. The focus of my project was on redesign phage using both rational and combinatorial methods in order to finish the genetics of a simple system.
