I am a Vanier Scholar in the Rochman Lab in the Department of Physical and Environmental Sciences at the University of Toronto Scarborough studying the sources, transport, and fate of plastic pollution in the environment. In addition, I am interested in the connections between plastic pollution, carbon cycling, and climate change. I was a Visiting Research Scholar at the Commonwealth Science and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) in Tasmania, Australia in 2018 modelling plastic pollution in the ocean under a Michael Smith Foreign Study Supplement. I am heavily involved in environmental advocacy in my community and beyond. I have a Master of Science in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, and a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Chemistry, both from the University of Toronto.
