Joint Appointment, Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour

My interest in research was piqued through a series of lab experiences as an undergraduate Honours Biology & Psychology student at McMaster. I studied  fish ecology, cricket behaviour,  human mental health, and finally cell physiology. I decided that cells were my preferred organism and did my PhD in neurobiology at McMaster, studying intra- and intercellular communication in peripheral O2-sensitive cells. As an educator, my main goal is to promote undergraduate neuroscience education; I teach cellular neuroscience courses in  the Life Sciences, PNB and Neuroscience Programs.

Synapses, neurophysiology, sensory systems, science communication, curriculum development
My main pedagogical focus is advancing undergraduate neuroscience education at McMaster, through the development of new programs, courses, laboratories, and community-engagement experiences.
