Born and raised in Montreal, Quebec, I developed an early appreciation for aquatic life thanks to summers spent in the lakes of Canada and the coastal waters of New England.
I utilize a range of interdisciplinary methods and approaches to answer complex questions about how fish cope in changing environments. I've worked and taught in some of the most interesting aquatic systems on Earth, including sites in Uganda, Bahamas, Fiji & Canada.
Addressing the mounting impacts of climate change on aquatic systems requires a multi-faceted approach. Accordingly, I prioritize working on collaborative projects with researchers and stakeholders from different disciplines with the ultimate goal of improving readiness and resilience to these changes.
I believe in creating a supportive research environment that is inclusive and empowering for all members. In teaching, I foster a positive atmosphere with the aim of cultivating a community of confident, kind, and capable scientists.
