About Me

Assistant Professor

Ph.D., Biology, University of Ottawa
B.Sc., Biology, University of Ottawa

I joined the Westminster Department of Biology in the fall of 2006.  I teach Physiology and Neurobiology as well as a number of introductory courses for the major and the Westminster liberal arts curriculum.  My biological research interests focus on the effects of environmental stressors on fish. Current studies involve the use of zebrafish as a model organism for examining the effects of anthropogenic factors on nervous system development.  I also serve on the Medical Professions Advisory Committee (MedPAC).
