Since I was a child I have been enthralled by the natural world. Despite – or perhaps, in spite of – growing up in downtown Toronto without a childhood pet, I developed a fondness for animals and an appreciation for the diversity of life on this planet.
I completed my M. Sc. in the lab of Dr. Njal Rollinson. My project investigated temperature dependent sex determination and timing of developmental events in a Northern population of snapping turtles (Chelydra serpentina).
