During my time with Fisheries and Ocean Canada, I have been involved in a number of different projects. Most recently, I was part of a team working to develop and apply a framework to identify marine organisms most vulnerable to ship-source oil spills. I am also involved with the Endeavour Hot Vents Marine Protected Area and Canada's recently announced Offshore Area of Interest, and have a research backgroun in the population ecology of hydrothermal vents. On the upcoming cruise, I will be part of the oceanography team, collecting water samples from two of Canada's offshore seamounts.
