Position: Research Associate

About:

Shawn completed a Ph.D in Biophysics at the University of Guelph. He joined the Brown lab in January 2012, and is working on applying his knowledge of cell structure and membrane physicochemistry towards cutting-edge methods in antimicrobial development. Outside of the lab, Shawn builds scientific computing systems that are tailored to interfacing with analog/legacy equipment. He prefers, however, to spend his free time cooking and reading books about warlocks.

 
 

Research Interests: 

My research revolves around finding new screening phenotypes, and exploring their potential in screening for new bioactive molecules. Further, I have been creating new platforms for novel chemical-genomics screening. In increasingly high throughput, we can now assess whole genome responses to stimuli such chemical or environmental pressures.
