Canid and Ungulate Ecology Lab

I have been a research biologist with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resource and Forestry’s (MNRF) Wildlife Research & Monitoring Section in Peterborough, Ontario since August 2009. In addition to my current involvement in canid and ungulate research, I have been a part of wild turkey, black bear, lynx/bobcat, and mink projects.

Prior to joining the MNRF, I completed my M.Sc. at Carleton University in the Geomatics and Landscape Ecology Research Laboratory where I studied the movement of small mammals (mice, voles, and chipmunks) across 4-lane divided highways. You can read my published manuscript here.
