About Me

I am an ecologist and conservation biologist interested in 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 also conduct field studies, and have worked in sub-tropical New Zealand, temperate landscapes in Canada, and in Arctic coastal environments. 

My research on climate change, predator-prey interactions, reproductive endocrinology, the evolution of ornamentation, and social behaviour has been published in leading journals such as Nature, Proceedings of the Royal Society and Global Change Biology.

Currently, I am working for Fisheries and Oceans Canada as an Aquatic Science Biologist. In the past, I held positions with Environment and Climate Change Canada and the University of Windsor, and completed a PhD at McMaster University.
