Marine ecosystems are facing a multitude of stressors in the Anthropocene. Understanding the ecology of complex marine systems and incorporating their socioeconomic importance is imperative to design and establish effective conservation actions.
I am currently a PhD Candidate in the Reef Function Hub and Bellwood Lab at James Cook University in Townsville, Australia with Dr. David Bellwood. My research will explore the downstream effects of changes in coral reef habitats on reef fish communities. I am also the co-founder of Bayes' Baes: an online platform of statistical resources written by ecologists for ecologists.
I graduated from Simon Fraser University with a B.Sc. (Hons) in Biological Sciences in the Ecology, Evolution, and Conservation stream. During that time, I have worked as a research technician in the Marine Biodiversity and Conservation Lab with Dr. Nick Dulvy at the Earth2Ocean group and the International Union for Conservation of Nature Species Survival Commission Shark Specialist Group. I have also worked as a research assistant in the Marine Ecology Lab with Dr. Isabelle Côté.
