I am a PhD Candidate in the Earth2Ocean Research Group at Simon Fraser University, under the supervision of Dr. John Reynolds and Dr. Elizabeth Elle. I study how nutrients move through coastal ecosystems. My current research examines the effects of spawning Pacific salmon on coastal wildflowers, and how coastal pollinators respond to nutrient pulses from the sea.
Formerly, I worked as a research assistant and lab manager at the University of British Columbia in the Department of Zoology. I also worked in the UBC Department of Botany and the UBC Herbarium. I assisted in curation and accession of coralline red algae specimens into the UBC Herbarium at the Beaty Biodiversity Museum.
I completed my BSc (Hons) in Marine Biology under the supervision of Dr. Eric Taylor at UBC.
