Lab Technician and Administrative Assistant
Ixcela's Lab Technician and Administrative Assistant, Monique Desnoyers, received her Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute in 2018. Her interest in the microbiome was sparked by a microbiome class she completed for her biology minor. At Ixcela, she runs samples and helps with daily lab tasks. She is interested to see how further researching the microbiome will advance medical science.
In addition to doing lab science, Monique enjoys teaching science to others. She spent three summers as a science camp counselor, most notably at a zoo. In her spare time, Monique enjoys participating in roller derby and boxing. Her personal zoo consists of two wonderful guinea pigs and a delightful little gecko.
