Adrian 
Reyes-Prieto

Associate Professor

I am a biologist that became interested in organelle evolution and endosymbiosis since my early  undergraduate student days. After finishing my Ph.D. studies in Mexico City, where I was born, I have been progressively migrating  up to the North of the continent chasing algae and their plastids.  Besides my research activities  I am part of theaching teams involved in several course of the UNB Biology program.

Valadez-Cano
Rossella
Calvaruso

Ph.D. Student

I am a phycologist and my interest in algae began when I was an undergraduate student in Sicily, where I graduated in Marine Biology in 2010. After my masters a strange turn of fate brought me to Canada for my Ph.D. working on glaucophytes!

Clarissa Lalla
Sarah
Russell

Undergraduate Student/

Research Associate

I am a Maritime born undergraduate student entering my last semester of a Bachelors of Science degree in Biology at UNB. I have been working in the Reyes lab since summer 2013 as an undergraduate research assistant. After graduation,

I hope to enter the work field and gain more laboratory experience and eventually intend to pursue a Master's of Community Health and Epidemiology.

You?
Alexandra DeShaw

M.Sc. Student

I am an undergraduate student entering my last year of a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology at UNB.

I am also completing a minor in Computer Science. I’m working in the Reyes lab for my honours thesis. After graduation, I hope to pursue further education to gain more experience in bioinformatic approaches to studying the field of genetics.

Or you?

Honours Student

Postdoctoral Researcher

I am biologist and finished my Ph.D. in Biological Science in 2017. I specialize in computational modelling of microbial metabolism.

I am especially interested in the evolutionary study of metabolic capabilities of mutualistic bacterial endosymbionts and photosynthetic organelles.

PAST LAB MEMBERS

Jasmine
Chong

Honours Student

Jasmine was my first student. After helping me to set my lab during my fiest days at UNB, Jasmine defended sucesfully her thesis in 2013. Recently she finished a M.Sc. dregre in Epidemiology at McGill University.

Roger
Silva

Ph.D. student

Cristopher
Jackson

Postdoctoral Researcher

Chris was part of our team from 2012 to 2014. He produced large amounts of sequence data that we are still working on! More papers are coming. Since 2015 Chris is working as Posdoctoral Researcher at the Univeristy of Melbourne.

Joshua Clowater

Undergraduate Student

Francisco Figueroa

Posdoctoral Researcher

Paco joined the lab in 2012. After three years with us he came back to Mexico City to work  as  Posdoctoral Researcher at the Autonomos Metropolitan Univeristy. I am still waiting for some paper to be finished!

Meagan
Hicks

Honours Student

Meagan came to our lab in 2014 to complete her thesis in Biology. In  2015 Meagan graduated presenting her comparative study about meiosis and sexual reproduction in diverse groups of algae.
