I have been working in flow cytometry for 25 years. My first experience was during my time at Liverpool University (Medical Cell Biology BSc. Hons) during my final year thesis.  This started my career with a move into clinical training with the Blood Transfusion Service, London UK; followed by Leeds, UK as a Clinical Scientist. I completed a MSc in Transfusion Medicine from the Research School of Medicine, Leeds, UK. This was followed by a few years working for the biotechnology industry at Cambridge Antibody Technology, UK. From here I moved to the Medical Research Council, Cambridge, UK to run the  MRC flow cytometry facility.
I started at the University of British Columbia in 2001 and have the seen the facility grow considerably over the years as more people are trained in the technology and apply it to their research.
My goal is  introduce more people to the application of flow cytometry, through training an dproviding specialised support for all the research needs.

I graduated UVic in 2007 with a B.Sc in Biochemistry.  Soon after graduating, I worked in different labs at UBC gaining more experience in Immunology prior to my role in the UBCflow Facility. I have over 11 years of flow cytometry experience working on different instruments and platforms.

Research Interests::  Adult tissue specific stem cells play a critical role in replacing lost tissue, they do not act in isolation and multiple other cell types modulate their function. This ensures that the rebuilding of functional, stromal, vascular and other tissue components is coordinated and follows a temporal and spatial organization compatible with function. Our goal is to identify and characterize these “accessory” cells types as a starting point to understand how they regulate tissue specific stem cells as well as each other, and how such regulation goes awry in pathological situations. In particular, we have focused our attention on the role of innate immune cells and stromal progenitors. In this context our lab works on three research directions, cellular systems in muscle regeneration, microglia/macrophages in CNS pathology and epigenetic control of lineage choice/differentiation.
