Position/Title: PhD Student
Office: N/A (please email for appointment)
During my BSc in Animal Biology, I worked on a research project under Dr. Niel Karrow that inspected the use of CpG DNA as a vaccine adjuvant in aquaculture species and agriculture species. I soon became interested in vaccine alternatives and the impacts of antimicrobial resistance. I completed my BSc Honours in Animal Biology at the University of Guelph in April 2018, and continued my education by completing my MSc with Dr. Karrow in August 2021 with the focus of my thesis being the effects of phytochemicals on bacterial resistance in zebrafish. However, my thirst for knowledge was not quenched, and I wanted to diversify my research portfolio. Therefore, I started my PhD with Dr. Karrow investigating the effects of ewe selenium supplementation on lamb resilience.
After the completion of my PhD, I am hoping to start a post-doctoral position and ultimately become a professor. When I am not in the lab, I am either getting active in the gym, playing with my furry friends, or cooking up a storm!
