My name is Meaghan MacDonald, I am entering my third year at StFX and working towards completing a BSc in biology with a math minor. This is my first summer on the research team and I will be working on testing antifouling treatments in the Bras D’or lakes. I am from Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia and grew up spending my summers by the ocean. I am excited that I can still enjoy spending time on the water through research. After my undergrad I plan to attend grad school with a focus in the medical field.
