For nearly a decade, I've been working to increase public awareness of microbes and health. Most of my efforts come in the form of columns and blogs. Here you can find the most popular sources.
This site is devoted to my personal thoughts on our relationship with microbes and takes a different, if not experimental view on public awareness.
Each week, learn about the latest research in microbiology and how the information impacts each of our lives. In Huffington Post fashion, it is both interesting as well as informative.
What does the present knowledge tell us about our future? Check in each week to find out how recent research may one day change our lives.
Every relationship could use a little help. This column offers advice on how we can improve our lifelong bond with germs and offers ways to keep you and your loved ones healthy while respecting microbes and the environment.
I am a regular with CBC Radio and also with SiriusXM's Ward and Al Show.
Despite no longer having a proper lab, I keep up my research in a variety of ways. To check out my work, you can always look me up on Google Scholar.
