She did postdoctoral fellowships at the University of Warwick under the supervision of Dr. Mark Smith and at the University of Toronto under the supervision of Dr. R. Mark Henkelman. She was then a Research Associate under the supervision of Dr. John G.

Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador was founded in 1925 as a memorial to the Newfoundlanders who lost their lives during the First World War. There are more than 19,000 students across 6 different campuses. Dr. Cahill's lab is located on the St. John's campus in the lovely city of St. John's. St. John's (population 110,000) is home to a vibrant downtown with great music, culture, and food. The greater St. John's area promises many adventures: whale watching, puffin sightings, hiking on the East Coast Trail, surfing. See photos below taken by students from the Cahill lab.
The weather in St. John's is described on Wikipedia as "a humid continental climate with smaller seasonal variations than normal for the latitude. Of the major Canadian cities, St. John's is the foggiest and the windiest" (bold and underline added by Dr. Cahill for emphasize).
