I have always had a clear idea of what I wanted to do when I grew up. I became determined quite young that I was going to be a marine biologist and study whales. This determination has been a useful trait, from finding interesting and unique field experiences to completing graduate school!
My research focuses on animal behaviour and how animals respond to human activities. I have studied the impacts of coastal and offshore industries on marine mammal populations in the Arctic, USA, Canada and Scotland.
I am currently a Research Scientist with SMRU Consulting North America and a Post Doctoral Research Fellow in the Marine Ecology Lab at SFU with Dr. Isabelle Côté.
