Theora is study sea slug movement patterns and a potentially new way animals might use magnetic fields to navigate.
Theora says: Raised in Antigonish, I’m a second year student in the biology program here at X. Though I have yet to find my focus I am excited about exploring the wide world of biological studies. Some of my other passions include religious studies, sketching, bookmaking and watching bad horror movies.
After two years at Dalhousie, I transferred to StFX and completed my BSc in Biology with a minor in Development Studies in 2017. I’m originally from Sherbrooke but now live outside of Antigonish in St. Josephs. I am really looking forward to spending the summer doing research, and will be testing anti-fouling materials in Whycocomagh, CB, with Ella Maltby. My hobbies include taking too many pictures of my dog, being outside, and talking about how cool science is.
