General. Thank you for your interest in our research program! We are a part of the great Earth2Ocean research group, comprised of five labs who all focus on aquatic ecology and their 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 field work and data analysis, being an engaged part of our team and the broader community, effective science communication, and a little coursework. Plus, lets 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 send me an email describing a bit about yourself and why you want to go to graduate school. Also attach your resume/CV and a statement of research interests. 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 always 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.
