- B.Sc. Physics, McGill University, 2000
- Ph.D. Physics, McGill University, 2006
Ph.D. thesis research was performed in Peter Grütter‘s Scanning Probe Microscopy and Nanoscience group in the Physics Department at McGill University. He investigated the origins of surface stress when various types of molecules trigger chemical/physical reactions at gas-solid and liquid-solid interfaces using AFM-based microcantilever sensors.
- Postdoctoral Fellow, University of British Columbia, 2008
In the applied biophysics group of Andre Marziali at the University of British-Columbia (UBC), he studied single-molecule bonds (DNA-DNA for genotyping and receptor-ligand for drug screening applications) using solid-state nanopore-based force spectroscopy.
- Postdoctoral Fellow, Stanford University, 2010
At the Stanford Genome Technology Center, with Ron Davis, he studied the screening behaviour of DNA polymers and fluid transport under high electric fields in nanofluidic transistors, i.e. electrically gated nanopore devices.
