During that time, I travelled to various places, but the most memorable experience involved 3 short weeks of volunteering at an elephant sanctuary. It was during that trip that I discovered how passionate and interested I am in wildlife, and specifically, wildlife conservation.

Now going into my third year as an Honours student in Biology, I’m extremely excited that I am involved in my second year of research. After completing my first year, I was lucky to receive a research position studying one of Canada’s rarest plants, Geum peckii, located in Brier Island, NS.

As a new member of the Wyeth lab, I will be collaborating with two other students to find environmentally friendly antifouling coatings in hopes that we can apply our methods to aquaculture netting.

After I finish my undergrad, I hope to do a Masters degree relating to either wildlife conservation or animal behaviour.
