he/him; last name pronunciation: “ken-el val-e-air”

Incoming Assistant Professor

Department of Immunology and Cell Biology, Université de Sherbrooke

The list of biology fields that my research has involved at one point or another is too long to post here. Let’s say I know very little about a lot of things.

On the daily: If you wonder whether I’m being serious, I’m not. Music always and everywhere. I sneeze often and loud - my apologies to those who spend time in my general vicinity.

About my job: Conferences are the best part of what we do as academic researchers. You travel to meet new colleagues, start collaborations, get updated on the state of the art, promote your work. It’s the best.
