I am an educator and an ecologist, and am an assistant professor at MacEwan University. As an educator, my goal is to engage others with the natural world and I do this through both teaching and science outreach. My research focuses on monitoring biodiversity using citizen science. I am also interested in understanding ecology and evolution by studying life history and behaviour in red squirrels. Below you can read more about my current research, teaching, and outreach.
I am looking forward to my first term at MacEwan University in fall 2018.
I previously taught Northern Ecology and Public Engagement in Ecology and Evolution at the University of Alberta as the primary instructor. I was also previously a teaching assistant for Biology of Birds, Field Methods in Ecology, and Introduction to Biological Diversity at the University of Alberta.
Sharing my love for science through science communication is my passion and my research focuses on citizen science. You can also find me on Twitter. I have experience discussing my science at public presentations, in schools, at festivals, and in media interviews.
