Devinne received her Bachelor of Science degree with Honours in Life Sciences at McMaster University. Following graduation, she worked for two years at the Population Health Research Institute, where she worked on a randomized controlled trial that discovered that the use of rivaroxaban reduces cardiovascular outcomes in patients with coronary or peripheral artery disease. In 2017, she returned to McMaster University to complete her Master’s degree in Medical Science, where she studied the relationship between gut microbiota, metabolites, and brain neurotrophic factors in the expression of anxiety and depression. She recently joined the Didar Lab as a Research Assistant and is excited to work on bio-inspired related technologies. Outside of academia, Devinne likes to travel, practice yoga, and explore hiking trails in Hamilton with her dog.
