Concordia University, Montréal, CA

Bioengineer, science communicator. PhD Researcher at the Shih Microfluidics Lab, community manager and co-founder at Bricobio, your local Montréal DIYBio lab, freelance biotech consultant. I’m also on the SynBio Canada’s Steering Committee as a Community Officer, involved with iGEM as judge and iGEM Concordia instructor.

For my day time job (PhD), I build cool things, like control systems that can make you play with cells and droplets on a chip.
Otherwise, I grow cool things, like Kombucha leather lamps, fermented mustard …

Feel like sending me an interesting ebook? (only .mobi files)

Academic interests: Microfluidics, (mammalian) synthetic biology, ecosystem engineering, gene drives, mycorrhizal fungi.

Other: Traveling (lots of it), outdoor adventures and photography/art.
