Research interests: ecophysiology, aerobic scope, swimming performance, movement, conservation

The general objective of my doctoral study is to assess the effects of fluctuations in temperature and flow regimes on physiological and behavioural response of freshwater fish, and to explore the reliability of aerobic scope, cost of swimming and movement rates as habitat quality indicators for riverine freshwater fish. The project implies a combination of field and laboratory studies on smallmouth bass Micropterus dolomieu of Kiamika river, Quebec. By exploring the link between novel habitat quality indicators and environmental conditions, the goal of this project is to improve our ability to develop valid habitat quality models, and therefore to guide conservation of critical habitat for freshwater fish.
