After completing my Biology degree at STFX I went through the typical “what am I going to do with my life after grad” phase. Thankfully, Russ took pity and hired me for a research position! I traveled to Bamfield, BC where I researched the effect of UV light on biofouling organisms. I’m pursuing the antifouling research and working with the talented Amelia MacKenzie this summer in Waycobah, CB. Short-term goal: convert the Wyeth lab to veganism, expand my bug collection, and enjoy a glass of pinot noir after work. Long-term goal: return to the West coast and do my masters!
