AlumniM.Sc. Students - Alumni  (2014)
I am a M.Sc. student under the supervision of Steven Cooke (Carleton University) and Scott Hinch (University of British Columbia). I am broadly interested in the ecological consequences of anthropogenic alterations to river systems. My M.Sc. research focuses on evaluating the effects of managed flow releases at a diversion dam in southwestern British Columbia, Canada on the behaviour, energetics and survival of adult sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka).
