Nury Paula Santiesteban

Nury Paula Santiesteban

Nury has a B.Sc. in Physics from the Universidad Nacional de Columbia. She went on to to an M.Sc. in Physics at Universidad de Los Andes with supervisor Chad Leidy on "Mechanical Properties of Membranes as resistance Factor to Antimicrobial Peptides." Nury joined Memorial in May 2014 where she is a Physics PhD candidate. She works with Valerie Booth and Michael Morrow on performing solid state NMR with antimicrobial peptides interacting with intact bacteria.

Jessica Besaw

Jessica completed her combined B.Sc. (Hons) in chemistry and applied mathematics in 2013. She is co-supervised by Professors Rowley and Booth, studying protein structure and function using computer simulations and NMR. She was awarded a Julie Payette NSERC Canada Graduate Scholarship in 2013 and the A. G. Hatcher Scholarship in 2014.

Mohammad Hassan

Mohammad Hassan Khatami

Mohammad Hassan completed a BSc and MSc in Physics in Iran at Xanjan University and IASBS, respectively. Since 2011 he has been in the Physics PhD program at Memorial, co-supervised by Ivan Saika-Voivod and Valerie Booth. Mohammad Hassan researches the structural mechanisms of surface active peptides using both computational and experimental NMR methods. 

Tadiwos Getachew

Tadiwos Getachew

Before joining our group, Tadiwos completed his BSc in Chemistry at Debub University in Ethiopia, followed by an MSc in Chemistry from the University of Eastern Finland. He became a PhD candidate in the Biochemistry PhD program at Memorial in 2013. Tadiwos is working on dynamic light scattering, circular dichroism and NMR studies of surfactant protein B refolding.

Gagandeep Sandhu

Gagandeep Sandhu

Gagandeep has a BSc in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, as well as an MSc in Physics from Panjab University Chandigarh, India. She is now a PhD candidate in the Physics and Physical Oceanography Department at Memorial and is co-supervised by Michael Morrow and Valerie Booth. Gagandeep is using solid state NMR techniques to study the mechanism of action of antimicrobial peptides derived from cod.
