I am currently the Sustainable Fisheries Coordinator at the Ecology Action Centre, a member-based environmental charity in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. In this role, I advocate for resilient fisheries in Atlantic Canada that are socially, economically, and ecologically sustainable.
Previously, I worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow at Dalhousie University in Halifax, where I explored life-history patterns among wild Atlantic salmon populations in Eastern Canada with Jeff Hutchings. I completed my PhD in 2017 with Nick Dulvy at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, British Columbia, where my research focused on understanding the relationships among life histories in sharks, rays, and chimaeras. For my undergraduate Honours research at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia, I explored dietary partitioning among co-occurring coastal stingrays working with Mike Bennett.
