All equipment and services in the Suite are available for both research and teaching and, as such, we encourage all faculty, staff, and students to use the facility. For more information, please contact me at 902-494-3309 or email me at Although my work duties focus on digital imaging, electron and confocal microscopy, my own research specialty is botany, especially plant anatomy, embryology, flower development and evolution. To see some of my research work at Dalhousie, please visit Dr. Mark Johnston's (my post-doc supervisor) homepage.
