Greetings! I am a Canadian postdoc in the lab of Peter Turnbaugh at the University of California, San Francisco where I am interested in developing genetic methods to manipulate host-associated microbes.

This blog is an eclectic mix of things that I spontaneously want to write about, though most entries are science-related. I don’t write a lot, but that’s not due to lack of wanting to; alas, there just aren’t enough hours in the day for everything.
