Titles: Assistant Scientist

Biographical Statement:
The overall goal of our research program is to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms that regulate metabolic homeostasis, with the long-term goal of translating basic research findings into therapies for human health.

Research Interests:
Obesity, Diabetes, Fatty liver disease

Using novel methods to image fatty acid metabolism in real-time and proteomic and lipidomic techniques, we plan to investigate the mechanisms by which cells sense lipids and maintain lipid homeostasis.

A second major project will expand upon the novel biology of ABHD5 interactions with the PNPLA lipase family to investigate the role in fatty liver disease and diabetes.

Awards and Honors:

  • Roger Davis Investigator Award, Kern Lipid Conference, 2019
  • Canadian Diabetes Association Post-doctoral Fellowship, 2013 - 2016
  • Canadian Institutes of Health Research Doctoral Research Award, 2010 - 2013
