About Me

I grew up St. Catharines, ON, Canada, right near beautiful Niagara Falls! I have now been an Indiana resident and Ball State professor for ~3 years and I couldn’t be happier about my decision to move here. My lab focuses on Biochemistry, where we study the engineering and application of green chemical catalysts. I love the feeling of coming into the lab every day with the potential to make a brand new discovery, nothing beats it!

My College Experience

I attended the University of Toronto (HBSc - Biology and Chemistry) and Brock University (BEd, PhD - Biotechnology) before moving to Nashville, TN to work as a Postdoctoral Scholar at Vanderbilt University. I have always loved teaching, but it wasn’t until graduate school that I really fell in love with scientific research. That experience cemented my belief that a life in academia as a research professor was my ultimate goal!

What I have Learned?

My plans definitely changed over the course of my academic career. From wanting to be an elementary/high school teacher, to finally being exposed to primary research, to changing my path towards becoming a research professor. I learned a lot about research as a graduate student and a postdoctoral scholar, but I wish I would have gotten more involved with research earlier in my academic career. Still, it’s never too late!

Research Interests

Dr. Froese's research is in synthetic biology and focuses on the repurposing of existing biological systems for useful applications. His laboratory will design green catalytic tools to enable the sustainable production of a variety of biologically relevant compounds.
