"After obtaining the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree, I practiced veterinary medicine for two years, and then returned for a Master of Science degree combined with a residency in Veterinary Clinical Pathology at the University of Guelph. Thereafter, I obtained board certification by the American College of Veterinary Pathologists. I then completed a PhD in Immunology at McMaster University Medical School funded by a Medical Research Council of Canada fellowship. I then spent two years on faculty at the University of Georgia, and then joined the faculty of the University of Guelph. At the University of Guelph I held a Canada Research Chair II in Veterinary Pathology from 2005 to 2015. I have an active research program supported by agencies and foundations such as the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA), the Canadian Foundation for Innovation, the Canada Research Chairs program, Equine Guelph, Pet Trust and others.
My time is dedicated to research focused on feline immunity and the role of the epitheliumn equine asthma, teaching in the veterinary and graduate curriculum, including diagnostic interpretations for the OVC Health Sciences Centre (OVC-HSC), and service at the institutional and professional organization level. I have been elected president of the American College of Veterinary Pathologists for 2019. My area of diagnostic expertise is hemolymphatic neoplasia. I oversee the flow cytometry facility at the OVC and analysis of clinical samples through the Animal Health Laboratory. I also provide professional expertise to a variety of research collaborators, colleagues in industry and administrators at other academic institutions."
