I’m a researcher interested in conservation and management, in particular in the north, and in applying ecological and evolutionary genomics towards these ends. My research and employment history is varied, but all relates to these interests in some way. Read more about my research here: Research.
Currently, I’m a postdoc in Dylan Fraser’s lab http://www.dylanfraser.com/ at Concordia University in Montreal. I recently finished my PhD in Sean Rogers’ lab http://people.ucalgary.ca/~srogers/ at the University of Calgary, and before that, completed my MSc in Zoology with Drs. Andrew Trites http://mmru.ubc.ca/personnel/trites/ and Trish Schulte https://www.zoology.ubc.ca/~dmetzger/schulte_lab/ at the University of British Columbia https://www.ubc.ca/. I began in research working with Drs Brenda Gallie and Timothy Corson in Applied Molecular Oncology at the University Health Network in Toronto. I did some of this work in Toronto between my BSc and MSc. During my transition between these degrees, I also worked at the Alaska SeaLife center on a salmon conservation and enhancement project and at the Vancouver Aquarium as a naturalist.
In addition to my work in science I have also been involved as an advocate for people who are visually impaired, mostly surrounding possibilities in science and education, but also as an educator and mentor. Read more about this here: Visual impairment and science.
