I’m a field ecologist; I observe natural phenomena, conduct experiments in nature, and simulate nature in the lab. Right now, my research questions tend to focus on freshwater environments. While at Queen’s University, I trained as a paleolimnologist. During my time with the Canadian Rivers Institute, I gained experience in aquatic ecology and fisheries biology. Now, I’m hoping to expand my skill-set to include genetic techniques, in order to answer ecological questions from multiple perspectives.
