Research scientist/Adjunct professor, University of Saskatchewan

I received my BS in 2009 in Biology, my MS in 2011 in pathogenic microbiology, and my PhD in 2016 for my work on antigenic variation in Neisseria gonorrhoeae at Northern Illinois University. I went on to study the causative agent of Lyme disease, Borrelia burgdorferi, at Rocky Mountain Labs, NIH, NIAID from 2016-2022. During this time, I studied B. burgdorferi genetics and factors that affect tick colonization and vertebrate infection. In 2022 I accepted a Research Scientist position at the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization where I am continuing my work on B. burgdorferi and N. gonorrhoeae.
