My Master’s thesis focuses on the movement patterns of grey wolves in northern Alberta, and the effects of snow conditions and manmade linear features area on fine- and broad-scale habitat selection. I am interested in landscape ecology and statistical modelling, and in exploring the dynamic relationship between humans and their environment.

I received my undergraduate degree from McGill University in 2013. It was during that time that I had the opportunity to travel to East Africa, Peru and the southwestern United States. I worked as a lab assistant for one summer, helping Dr. Waterway with research on the phylogeny of sedges. The following summer, I received a NSERC USRA with Dr. Humphries to study wild populations of Eastern chipmunks in southeastern Quebec. This work inspired me to do a research project and the resulting essay was selected for the 2013 Undergraduate Awards.
