    Personal profile

    Artistic and research interests

    Presently, I am a Project Scientist working on climate change-related research in the Scheller Biochemistry Group at the Department of Bioproducts and Biosystems. I also hold an honorary position as Docent (Adjunct Professor) in Molecular Microbiology from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Helsinki. I had majored in microbiology, earning undergraduate and graduate degrees from the Department of Microbiology at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada. My prior research positions were in both academia and industry, and as well internationally for extended periods. My intellectual drive is fueled by a scientific and creative curiosity to study research topics in the areas of molecular microbiology, protein chemistry, and microbial genomics, along with a keen interest to take on protein engineering and structural-related projects. Aside from research, I have also provided ad hoc lecturing and training support for course topics in molecular microbiology. In my spare time, I enjoy hobby fishing, listening to 70s era music, and walking the family dog. I am also an ice hockey fan and avid reader of biographies and cold war-themed spy novels.
