Megan is interested in the application of science to conservation and management issues in coastal ecosystems. I seeks to understand how humans impact marine and freshwater communities, particularly in the context of climate change. In 2015, she received her Master of Science in Zoology from the University of British Columbia. My masters thesis research focused on the effects of ocean acidification on species interactions in Pacific Northwest kelp forest communities. She also has a background in population ecology and fisheries management. She previously worked with Fisheries and Oceans Canada on a number of projects related to stock assessments and marine protected area monitoring programs.
