Biology doctoral student in the Faculty of Science

I'm a proud father to a beautiful boy, passionate about wild ecosystems and their protection.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO SFU?

Primarily for the mentorship of my thesis supervisor, but also to work within the broader science community of the Earth-to-Ocean Research Group from which I have received enormous inspiration.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR RESEARCH OR YOUR PROGRAM TO A FAMILY MEMBER?

I study the change in numbers and diversity of wild salmon in British Columbia over the last century by reading the individual and collective stories bound within the scales of fish extracted from fisheries. 

WHAT ARE YOU PARTICULARLY ENJOYING ABOUT YOUR STUDIES/RESEARCH AT SFU?

Being a member of the Earth-to-Ocean Research Group within the Biology department and learning from so many talented and thoughtful colleagues.

HAVE YOU BEEN THE RECIPIENT OF ANY MAJOR OR DONOR-FUNDED AWARDS? IF SO, PLEASE TELL US WHICH ONES AND A LITTLE ABOUT HOW THE AWARDS HAVE IMPACTED YOUR STUDIES AND/OR RESEARCH.

Yes, NSERC Alexander Graham Bell Canada Graduate Scholarship and a Weston Family Award for Northern Research. Both freed me from the confines of financial insecurity and enabled me to concentrate on my research.
