PhD Student

Geordi received his Honours Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Chemistry with high distinction from the University of Toronto (2019). He then entered a direct-entry PhD program under the joint supervision of Profs. Scott Prosser and Patrick Gunning. Currently, he balances his interests in expanding the molecular toolkit for studying protein-protein interactions (PPIs), studying the mechanisms underlying the functional selectivity of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), and designing chemical compounds to modulate the functions of proteins at the forefront of human disease. Geordi is the recipient of an Ontario Graduate Scholarship (2019) and an NSERC Canada Graduate Scholarships – Master's award (2020) for his work on exploring new fragment-based approaches to lead discovery using NMR of covalently modified proteins.
