Research experience

Sockeye Estuary Energetics, Sept. 2018 - present

D. Patterson, Dr. J. Moore, Simon Fraser University, BC

For my Master’s thesis, I am researching how the physiological condition of sockeye salmon smolts impacts swim ability and habitat selection throughout the downstream migration corridor, from lake to estuary to ocean.

Social-Ecological Resilience of Pacific Sea Gardens, Jan. 2020 - present

Dr. A. Salomon, Simon Fraser University, BC

In collaboration with Indigenous practitioners and researchers across the Pacific Ocean, our research group is documenting how traditional management and cultivation of sea gardens has lent to social-ecological resilience of the past and to inform present resource management.

Salmon Migration Physiology, Fraser River, BC, 2019

D. Patterson, Environmental Watch Program, Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Canada

In response to the landslide within the Fraser River watershed, I was stationed at the Big Bar emergency response field station to monitor adult salmon physiological condition and migration success. Tasks included acoustic tagging of adult salmon, set-up and monitoring of receiver and sonar stations, physiological sampling from salmon at site, such as blood and plasma extraction, fin clips for DNA, and whole-body lipid measurements.

Biogeography of Odonate Parasitism, 2016 - 2018

Dr. J.P. Lessard, Concordia University, QC

During my honor’s thesis, I examined how parasitism of dragonfly and damselfly communities is constrained by host evolutionary history, lake vegetation, and climatic variables.

Human Impacts on Mammal Use of Highway Underpasses, 2016 - 2017

Dr. J. Jaeger, Concordia University

In collaboration with the Ministry of Transport of Quebec and Corridor Appalachian, I led a research project monitoring mammal use of underpasses below a high traffic highway bisecting the essential wildlife corridor of the Northern Appalachian region, QC.

Immunology of Nanoparticle Pollution, 2015

Dr. P. Darlington, Concordia University

To investigate the risk of nanoparticle inhalation to human respiratory health, I conducted an experiment on the immunological response of human T cells following the exposure to ceria nanoparticles.
