I received my B.Sc. from the University of Guelph in Molecular Biology and Genetics and an M.Sc. in Biology from McMaster University (Canada). My career as a Bioinformatician spans over 17 years in both academic and commercial settings in Germany, Canada and the United States, involving many international collaborations in the areas of RNAi, Functional Annotation and NGS Analysis. I started working part-time for The RNA Institute in February 2020 and am excited to be here. As a Science Communications Specialist I am responsible for creating a wide range of published content and communication strategies for a technical scientific audience highlighting the strengths and scientific achievement of The RNA Institute and publicizing these achievements through outreach activities.
