PhD Candidate, School of Geography and Earth Sciences, McMaster University

I am currently completing my PhD in Ecohydrology at McMaster University, my research surrounds ecohydrological thresholds to severe peat fires and the role of feedbacks in peatland resilience to wildfire and climate change. I'm evaluating and developing forest fuel modification treatments to reduce peat burn severity and aid fire suppression in wildland-urban and wildland-industry interfaces.
