I am a postdoctoral researcher at University of California, Santa Cruz and I am fascinated by bacterial biofilms. I earned a PhD in veterinary science and a Masters in Applied Microbiology. Currently a Posdoctoral scholar
Faculté de médecine vétérinaire, Université de Montréal
to September 2016
Study of micro-organisms in their natural environment. Development of techniques for culturing bacteria form biofilms. Effect of antibiotics on biofilm. Immune response towards biofilms. Phenotypic changes in biofilms cells.
