Nanda is working towards his Master's degree at the University of Guelph. His research focuses on the development of network architecture for wireless nanosensors. Nanda completed his Bachelor's degree in Electronics and Communications in 2012 at the Punjab Technical University, India. He enjoys music, and watching and playing cricket.
Project Scientist (02/2013 ~ )
Mohammad graduated with a PhD in food microbiology from the University of Western Sydney, Australia. His PhD research focused on the molecular epidemiology of Listeria in food and he determined the routes of transmissions of Listeria in food production environments. Then he worked as a faculty member at Isfahan University of Medical Sciences, Iran and involved in teaching microbiology, research and food industry consultation. Currently, his research is focused on the molecular epidemiology of Clostridium difficile and metagenomics. At Dr. Suresh lab, Mohammad is developing methods for analysis of bacterial chemotaxis and food-borne pathogenic biofilms using microfluidic systems. He loves playing soccer and spending time with his two sons and wife.
B.Eng Student (05/2013 ~)
Evan is currently pursuing his Bachelor’s Degree in Biological Engineering at the University of Guelph. Evan is working in Dr. Suresh’s lab over the summer as part of the NSERC USRA program and is studying the chemotaxis of Listeria using microfluidic systems. His previous research experience includes DNA extraction and analysis in support of the Applied Bean Genomics project. Outside of the lab, Evan enjoys playing intramural volleyball, reading and listening to music.
M.Sc Student (09/2011~ )
Matthew is working toward his M.A.Sc. in Biological Engineering at the University of Guelph. His current research focuses on the study of biofilms through the use of atomic force microscopy and microfluidic devices. He completed his Bachelor's degree in Biological Engineering in April 2011 from the University of Guelph, contributing toward research projects involving repeatability testing on a biomedical research device and process efficiency development at a waste-water treatment facility through bench-scale modeling. Outside of the lab Matthew enjoys rock-climbing, slacklining, running, and playing intramural waterpolo and soccer.
