I grew up in Toronto, Canada, playing cello in high school. My passion for Biology came with its introduction in high school by my female Biology teacher. She rocked! I put my cello away and got my first research experience studying meal worms at U. of Toronto. I have been looking at the physiology of insects since!
I now work on the physiology behind painful or damaging stimuli, in terms of learned responses to painful stimuli and alterations in development as tissues repair.
