I am a broadly-trained ecologist with interests in population dynamics, animal behaviour, and conservation. I recently completed my Ph.D. with Dr. Ryan Norris at the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada. My thesis research focused on how the timing of environmental stressors influences the mechanisms and detectability of population declines. During my M.Sc. at the University of Amsterdam, I investigated differential long-distance migration in lesser black-backed gulls and behavioural plasticity in red knots. I recently joined the CIEE Living Data Project as a teaching/research postdoc based at McGill University and Université de Montréal.
