General. Thank you for your interest in our research program! We are a part of the great Earth2Ocean research group, comprised of five labs that all focus on aquatic ecology and conservation, allowing great extended collaboration and training opportunities.

My goal as an advisor is to help students become scientists that can contribute positively to the world. Thus, in our group, a grad school experience will hopefully include writing papers, collaborating effectively with diverse partners, doing fieldwork and data analysis, being an engaged part of our team and the broader community, effective science communication, and a little coursework. Plus, let's have fun. 

Students should be creative, motivated, hard-working, and generous team players. While these are shared traits, diversity in backgrounds and experiences will strengthen our group. 

If you are interested in joining the lab, please email lab manager Kim and copy Jon Moore with your resume/CV and a statement of research interests, and tell us:

  • A bit about yourself

  • Why you'd like to go to graduate school

  • Why you'd like to join our lab specifically

  • When you're looking to join the lab 

While we encourage everyone to apply and share how they would be a great addition to our team, please note that we received a large number of requests, and space is limited. Most competitive applicants have a relevant prior degree from a known institution, related field and/or lab work experience and published work. 

I encourage you to apply for fellowships and grants for support. Also, I can take students through both Biological Sciences and Resource and Environmental Management programs at SFU, so think about which might be a better fit.


We are sometimes looking for motivated volunteers who would like to gain experience with working in the outdoors! Please contact me if interested. I also accept ISS students on a case-by-case basis.
