In my position as Research Coordinator, I clean, organize, and manage land use and aquatic monitoring data (water chemistry, fish and benthic invertebrate species data, etc) to support various research initiatives being pursued by BiRN members under the CFREF program. I’m also working on a project looking at the concentrations of nutrients (total phosphorus and total nitrogen) in streams and rivers of southern Ontario and linking that to landuse such as agricultural and urban areas. In addition to this work, I oversee the BiRN website that you are perusing. I hope you’re finding the website useful and informative. Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions or suggestions for improvements (email@example.com).
