Experience

Details:

  • Samples from soil, plants, water, ice, nematode eggs, feces
  • Barcoding and “functional gene” sequence processing using a customizable series of scripts
  • Everything from perMANOVAs to ordinations to network analysis to study microbiome structure and composition, and contrast treatments.
  • Novel ideas for assessing ecosystem complexity and health from barcoding data which I plan to investigate in future
  • Additional novel ideas for data analysis of unreplicated objects (aerial images, for example)
  • Expertise in culturing soil organisms, and preparing gnotobiotic (all organisms known, artificial) systems including plants and ectomycorrhizal fungi.

My recent experience:

  • Research Associate, Dr. Kari Dunfield, University of Guelph (2013-2020): Focus on nitrogen and phosphorus cycling genes from soil organisms, as well as barcoding projects.
  • Crowdfunded project on an interesting cancer-fighting gut bacterium: here.
  • For other work experience, feel free to look me up on LinkedIn or contact me.
