I am an interdisciplinary biologist, and am interested in both understanding patterns in biodiversity and in working towards maintaining healthy ecosystems. I aim to work with the best available information available towards these ends, including Indigenous knowledge and Western scientific data (largely genomics and life history data). I am keen to work with organizations of any type to do the work effectively, and have always worked with groups outside academia, including communities, industry, government and non-governmental organizations. My work is a combination of testing theory with empirical studies, and applied questions, and includes recommendations for conservation and decision support tools. Currently, I work with the Canadian Wildlife Service, and so of course have a strong interest in policy. Read more about my research here.
As a person who is visually impaired, I have also been involved as an advocate, mostly surrounding possibilities in science and education, but also as an educator and mentor. Read more about this here.
