Background

I completed my Honours Bachelor of Science at the University of Toronto, double majoring in Environmental Science and Biodiversity and Conservation Biology, with a minor in Environmental Studies. For my undergraduate thesis, I looked at the impact of aquatic invasive species on sport fishes in Ontario lakes, supervised by Dr. Donald Jackson (UofT) and Dr. Cindy Chu (OMNRF). I have spent the last few years as a student research technician with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, working for both the Great Lakes Lab for Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences and the Asian Carp Monitoring Program.
