Postdoctoral Fellows

Sean Workman, PhD 

Sean earned his PhD in Biochemistry in 2019 while under the supervision of Dr. Natalie Strynadka at the University of British Columbia. Sean’s doctoral research focused on the structural and functional characterization of enzymes involved in the synthesis and recycling of bacterial cell wall carrier lipid, with a particular focus on membrane proteins. At the IMSS, Sean will be focusing on the development and application of transposon insertion sequencing techniques to investigate genetic interaction networks in bacterial pathogens.


Research Associates

Danae Suchan, MSc 

Danae is a research associate in the IMSS CL2 lab who earned her Master of Biology degree in 2021 under the supervision of Dr. Andrew Cameron. Her research involves the application of advanced genetic sequencing techniques to diverse fields of microbiology: zoonotic disease, agricultural plant-microbe interactions, bioremediation, and bacterial community geochemistry.


Tayah Leuken, BSc Biochemistry

Tayah is a research associate in the IMSS lab under the supervision of Dr. Andrew Cameron. She is involved in a myriad of projects but is currently working on microbial genetic systems (such as antimicrobial genes) and microbial ecology. She graduated in 2024 with a B.Sc in Biochemistry.
