I am a joint postdoc for Prof. Mike Gold and Prof. Dan Coombs and am the VP-Operations of UBC PDA. I did my PhD from University of Heidelberg, Germany. My current research is to understand molecular basis of priming mechanisms in B cells.
On the personal side, I consider myself as a fun-loving and enthusiastic person. I enjoy nature and my hobbies are traveling and photography.
My goals for UBC PDA:
My main aims for this year are the following:
- Creating teaching opportunities for postdoctoral fellows
Working closely with PDA and my supervisor, I was able to bring forward teaching opportunities for post docs in dept. of Microbiology and Immunology last year. As a part of professional development for post docs, my aim for this year is to extend my efforts in creating similar teaching opportunities for postodcs in other departments in life sciences.
- Work as a team and assist and support PDA in all their activities.
- To perform all duties of VP-Operations as described in constitution.
