About my research

I am the Bioinformatics Graduate Program Manager at the University of Guelph. In my role, I assist the Director in coordinating and managing various aspects of the graduate programs in Bioinformatics. I also act as a point of contact for students (prospective, current, and alumni), faculty, and external collaborators.

How my research improves life

The amount of biological information available to the scientific community, governments, and industry has grown immensely. The challenge is to organize, visualize, and interpret this information to develop these insights. An effective bioinformatician can apply computational and statistical tools to answer diverse biological questions. Bioinformatics is key for agriculture, medicine, public health, conservation, and law enforcement.
