Personal profile

Research interests

I am from Canada and hold an honorary position as Docent (Adjunct Professor) in Molecular Microbiology from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Helsinki. I majored in microbiology, earning my BSc Hons. (1st Class Honors; 1984), MSc (1986), and PhD (1993) degrees from the Department of Microbiology at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada. Among my prior positions in both academia and industry, and as well internationally for extended periods, I have held a series of fixed-contract positions at the University of Helsinki that lasted just over 18 years. My intellectual drive has been fueled by a scientific and creative curiosity to study research topics in the areas of molecular microbiology, protein chemistry, and microbial genomics, and from which I have developed the skills and interest to take on protein engineering and structural-related projects. Aside from my research, I have provided ad hoc lecturing and training support for course topics in molecular microbiology. In my spare time, I enjoy sport fishing, listening to 70s era music, and walking the family dog. I am also an ice hockey fan and avid reader of biographies and cold war-themed spy novels.

At the moment, I am actively pursuing the prospect of new career opportunities and challenges in the academic or commercial sector.
