I am an Assistant Professor of Biophysics in the Department of Physics and an Affiliated Faculty member of the Collaborative Mathematical Biology Group at the University of Alberta.
Education & Training
NSERC Postdoctoral Fellow/Postdoctoral Associate, Laufer Center for Physical and Quantitative Biology, Stony Brook University (2014-2019) [Advisor: Prof. Gabor Balazsi]
PhD Physics (2014), University of Ottawa. Graduate researcher at the Ottawa Institute of Systems Biology [Advisor: Prof. Mads Kaern]
MSc Physics (2010), University of Ottawa. Graduate researcher at the Ottawa Institute of Systems Biology [Advisor: Prof. Mads Kaern].
BSc Physics, Applied Mathematics Minor (2008), University of Calgary. Undergraduate researcher at the Institute for Biocomplexity and Informatics [Supervisor: Dr. Stuart Kauffman].
BSc Biological Sciences (2008), University of Calgary. Undergraduate researcher at the Institute for Biocomplexity and Informatics [Supervisor: Dr. Stuart Kauffman].
My research at the interface of physics and biology combines theory, computation, and experiment to make fundamental advances in our understanding of life and evolution, and applies this knowledge to study genetic networks and mitigate the growing problem of antimicrobial (drug) resistance. For more details, please visit the Charlebois Lab Website.
I am looking to hire an experimental biophysics graduate student! There are also opportunities for undergraduate students in my group interested in an independent study course (i.e., PHYS 499, which requires a 300-level physics course and consent of the department) and/or apply for funding to participate summer research, and for postdocs with/interested in applying for fellowships. Please contact me via email and include a CV and a brief statement of research interests if you are interested in joining my group.
