BSc Queen's University
During my undergraduate degree in Biology and Geology at Queen's University I worked in the Paleoecological Environmental Assessment and Research Lab. My research utilized diatoms as a proxy to understand the indirect and direct impacts that human disturbances can have on aquatic ecosystems. I am now continuing to pursue the intersection between biology and geology in the context of global change by focusing on permafrost thaw in the Peel Plateau, NWT, Canada. My current work centers around understanding the biogeochemical implications that thermokarst features have on streams and lakes through a temporal and spatial lens. In my spare time, I enjoy spending long hours outside exploring and connecting with nature, as well as watercolour painting, baking, and yoga.
