I was born and raised in Ottawa, Ontario. I completed my Ph.D. in 2010, then took up an NSERC Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Chicago in the Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry with Professor Benoît Roux. During my postdoctoral fellowship, I studied ion channel conduction and methods for modeling ion-protein interactions. I joined the Department of Chemistry at Memorial as an Assistant Professor in January, 2012. Please see my CV (pdf) for the full details of my professional work.
Fatemeh completed her B.Sc. at Shahid Beheshti University. She is developing new methods to calculate membrane permeability coefficients more accurately and using these methods to study the membrane permeability of gasotransmitters.
Ernest completed his B.Sc. (Hons) in chemistry at Mount Allison University. He completed an Honours thesis with Professor Khashayar Ghandi. He is developing methods to model the reactivity of cysteine residues with covalent-modifier drugs.
