I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Health Sciences in the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences at Brock University. Prior to joining Brock University, I worked as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Saskatchewan. I received my Bachelor degree from the Shanghai Medical University in China, and my Ph.D. from the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Saskatchewan. I was then a Postdoctoral Fellow at Boston University in the USA.
