I am a postdoctoral research associate working in Michael Banks' Marine Fisheries Genetics and Conservation Lab. My background is in behavioral ecology with a focus on why individuals choose the mates they do. I am currently working on a project in salmon mate choice. I completed an undergraduate degree at the University of Ottawa and a PhD at Carleton University, both in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. The title of my PhD thesis is 'Sexual selection, social information, and male mate choice in a promiscuous fish'.
