Bio: Graeme received his Hon. B.Sc. in Chemistry from the University of Toronto. After graduation, Graeme remained in Toronto and carried out his doctoral studies with Prof. Ronald Kluger, studying the mechanisms of decarboxylation of vitamin B1-derived intermediates and aromatic acids. After receiving his doctorate in 2016, Graeme traveled south of the border to study enzyme mechanisms under the supervision of Prof. Wilfred van der Donk at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign as an NSERC Postdoctoral Fellow. Graeme began his independent career in the Department of Chemistry at Queen’s University in July of 2019. His research program is focused on understanding how enzymes evolve and the engineering of enzymes into new and improved biocatalysts.
