I have a passion for examining the abiotic and biotic components on an ecosystem and seeing what effects anthropogenic processes have on these systems. 

Starting in August 2017, I conducted my own research under Neil Rooney surrounding the effects of agricultural intensity on stream metabolism on the north shore of Lake Erie. I used ecological indicators such as cotton strip assays and periphytometers to measure bacterial respiration and primary production as indicators of carbon cycling of stream function. 

In April 2019 completed my BSc at the University of Guelph with a major in Environmental Sciences.
