In theory and practice, I'm a plant physiological ecologist with five years of experience as a Scientist, Director, Head of Cultivation, and Senior Manager in Cannabis Cultivation. Such environments included glasshouses, indoor, and aquaponics.
My portfolio is an Indelible record of bringing best-selling and floral products to SKU across scales and environments. Consistently achieve, and redefine performance, efficiency, and quality (EU-GMP) via Kaizen operational principles.
I am an award-winning educator with nearly 20 published peer-reviewed research - funded successfully through federal (NSERC), institutional, and crowdfunding grants. In addition, I serve as Graduate Faculty (Guelph) and Lecturer (Toronto) to advise graduate research and teach undergraduates. Associate Editor for 'Frontiers in Plant Science'
The focus of my research is on the physiological traits and mechanisms that enable plants to adapt to crucial natural and managed ecological gradients- namely, light, nutrients, below-ground environments, and water availability. Ultimately, employing a trait-based responses to environmental variation framework, I scale research findings to forests and agricultural
