About me

  • From a young age, I was always interested in understanding how exercise
    influences physiology. As such, I pursued my bachelor's degree in kinesiology
    at McGill university. Following this, I started my master’s degree at Simon
    Fraser University where I developed an in vitro model of exercise (think
    “exercise in a dish”) to study exercise signaling. Currently, I am a PhD
    student in the molecular and cellular exercise physiology group with Dr.
    Jorge Ruas. Here, I study how endogenous tryptophan metabolites (which shift
    in response to exercise) modulate communication between sensory neurons and
    adipose tissue, and how this affects systemic energy metabolism. The outcome
    of my research could provide new therapies to help people with metabolic
    diseases such as obesity and diabetes.
