Research Interests:
  • Setting up the laboratory operation for the McGill University Centre for Tropical Diseases including blood and tissue parasites, and intestinal parasites.
  • Developing innovative staining techniques.
  • Co-ordinating the blood and tissue parasite QA program in Quebec.
  • Customizing and teaching numerous courses in malaria and general parasitology at all levels, nationally and internationally.

My current interests include environmental parasitology, and techniques to isolate parasites form various samples.
