I completed an NSERC postdoctoral research fellowship with Dr. Dan Mennill at the University of Windsor in 2015, studying the acoustic communication behaviour of temperate songbirds and insects, with a focus on how social interactions are affected by the presence of anthropogenic noise.

I received my PhD in biology at Carleton University in May 2012, supervised by Dr. Sue Bertram.

I am currently working as a Species at Risk Biologist with the Canadian Wildlife Service at Environment and Climate Change Canada, and also as a Science Coach in the evening support program at Lakefield College School.

My broad areas research interest include natural history, ecology, evolution, communication, and animal behaviour. I am especially interested in learning more about local species, and in studying organisms in their natural habitats.
