I am an M.Sc. graduate from Trent University, Canada, wherein I mapped the presence of potentially adaptive mutations along a matrilineal phylogeny of threatened woodland caribou. Often my research has aimed to use genetic markers to test for signatures of selection and one of my enduring research interests has been to assess the adaptive potential of wild populations. During my Bachelors I majored in both Biology and Philosophy with a focus on conservation, evolution, and philosophy of science. Subsequently, I value interdisciplinary research and look for ways to incorporate knowledge from different fields towards common goals.


Also included among my past work experience is ecological niche modelling among moose, radio-telemetry tracking of Canadian lynx in the Yukon, and preparation of next-generation sequencing libraries. Upon arriving in Portugal I began work as a laboratory manager and technician with the Population and Conservation Genomics group at the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência on primate evolution and landscape genetics. As of 2018, I joined the BIODESERTS group at CIBIO-InBIO as a research technician assisting in both wet-lab chemistry and analysis of genomic data.
