Attributes that best describes:
Recently, I have graduated from the University of Guelph with a masters degree in Biophysics. My time spent during my masters degree, as well as during my bachelors degree in Nanoscience, has trained me to troubleshoot and fix problems efficiently, while building strong relationships to work as an effective team with my coworkers.
I have always had a passion for research and development, especially in regards to imaging and characterization. I have had extensive experience with nano-imaging techniques such as atomic force microscopy (AFM) and scanning electron microscopy. Throughout my masters I became especially proficient using AFM, mastering several challenging modes of AFM such as conductive AFM and Kelvin probe force microscopy. In addition to this, I have utilized and been trained in a wide variety of measuring devices such as: Raman spectroscopy, spectrophotometry, optical microscopy and energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. My recent work has focused on combining these techniques with biological systems and microfluidic platforms to benefit the production of healing devices in the biomedical field.
My masters heavily emphasized troubleshooting and presenting unique solutions to problems that are faced almost everyday in the laboratory. Throughout my masters I became particularly interested in using these analytical skills to help novel ideas in science turn into practical applications, services and products that benefit the public. This ambition further grew during my time spent at the 2016 IC-IMPACTS workshop, which emphasized understanding the relationship between business and science. I believe that working at Agilent offers me a chance to influence and advance Canada's science and technology sector.
My background in science research, science education, event/volunteer coordination, festival management, data management and hard labour have made me a highly diversified individual who is critical of details and who is adept at solving problems whatever they may be.
