Aquatic Science Biologist

I conduct research on Canadian freshwater fish and their habitat, with a focus on meta-science, collaborative research prioritization, and multiple stressors.

Professional activities / interests

I am an ecologist and conservation biologist interested in the relationship between animals and their environments. My expertise lies in using quantitative approaches to understand the effect of changing environments on animal behaviour and population dynamics. I am also interested in policy and management of natural resources in Canada and the circumpolar Arctic.

I work for Fisheries and Oceans Canada as an Aquatic Science Biologist and am a Visiting Scholar at Lakehead University. In the past, I held positions with Environment and Climate Change Canada’s Wildlife Research Division, the Canadian Wildlife Service, and the Great Lakes Institute for Environmental Research at the University of Windsor.
