I pursued my Ph.D. research under the supervision of Dr. Colin Nurse in the Department of Biology at McMaster. I was ? and still am ? fascinated by how neurons work; how do they sense information, and how to they transmit sensory signals to other cells? My Ph.D. project focused on identifying the mechanisms by which a specialized group of cells near the heart sense and respond to oxygen, carbon dioxide, and acid levels in the blood. See below for some selected publications; visit PubMed for a complete list.
