I was an Assistant Professor in the Biology department (2018 - 2021). I am currently a scientist at the Hakai Institute in British Columbia and an Adjunct Professor in the Environmental & Life Sciences (ENLS) Graduate Program at Trent University. I am passionate about science and education and I have been a science educator and wildlife researcher for over 10 years. My research focus is on ecological genetics, ancient genomes and wildlife conservation.
