I am a community and ecosystem ecologist with an interest in the study of grasslands and wetlands. I investigate basic research questions in plant ecological theory as well as applied science for land management. To understand the processes that control plant communities, I take an integrated, multi-disciplinary approach. Click here to read my more about my background or see a list of publications.
I’m an MSc student in the environmental science program at Thompson Rivers University and my academic interests include ecology, soil science, and ecological restoration. My thesis is based on climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies for the ranching industry and I will be instructing course material for the new Applied Sustainable Ranching (ASUR) program offered through TRU. I am also currently involved in a restoration study being conducted at Mt. Polley mine in the wake of the tailings dam breach.
I am a geographer and ecologist who is excited to gain experience in the fields of environmental research, consulting, and assessment. I am passionate about ecosystem science and how environmental monitoring and management methods impact ecosystems.
