I am a PhD student in the Redpath Museum and in the Biology department at McGill University, under the supervision of Dr. Andrew Hendry and Dr. Marilyn Scott. For my thesis, I am focusing on the factors that affect gene flow in wild populations of Trinidadian guppies, with a particular interest in geography and host/parasite interactions. More broadly, I am interested in studying the diversity and the distribution of organisms that we observe today, by doing field observations and using genetic tools.
I also love to challenge and think about the way we teach Biology, and I'm part of a group (the AAU STEM graduate teaching fellows) that tries to implement new learning strategies in large freshman courses.
When I'm not doing biology, I'm mostly taking pictures, hiking, reading or sewing!
