I am an ecologist and science educator with an interest in the consequences of human activity for biological diversity, including impacts on species distributions, community assembly, and ecosystem functioning. I have conducted such fieldwork in temperate, arctic and tropical ecosystems. My history as an environmental scientist includes experience within the government of Canada as a Biologist and as a Policy Advisor to the Minister of the Environment. Subjects that interest me include ornithology, behavioral ecology, seed dispersal, restoration ecology, wildlife management, biodiversity policy, and the interplay between science and politics.
My passion for ecology was sparked on the Toronto Islands, a natural gem in my hometown. An interest in exploring coastal environments has led me to studying birds in remote places such as Nunavut, Haida Gwaii, Manitoulin Island, and Newfoundland in Canada, the Aleutian Islands in Alaska, and Madagascar and Trinidad and Tobago in the south. Pursuing my conservation biology research and teaching on Florida’s Gulf Coast is an ideal, exciting opportunity.
