I completed an MSc in the Robinson Lab at the University of Guelph where my research focused on understanding contemporary evolutionary processes and their ecological context in natural populations. Some of my past work includes assessing assortative mating in a population of pumpkinseed sunfish (Lepomis gibbosus) that has diverged to occupy two different lake habitats; littoral (nearshore) and pelagic (open water). To better understand how genes could be exchanged between subpopulations in different lake habitats, we undertook a one year mark-recapture study. We also investigated the factors that influence whether an individual moves or stays where they are.
