I am a post doctoral researcher at the University of Toronto Scarborough in the Department of Biological Sciences in the Cadotte Lab. I am studying how phylogenetic patterns can improve urban landscape design and how phylogenetic diversity changes along an urban gradient.
I study green roof ecology and performance as a member of the GRIT lab at the University of Toronto Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design. I also lecture in the undergraduate and graduate programs.
I finished my PhD in Biology in 2015 on patterns in urban bee and wasp diversity at York University with Dr. Laurence Packer. My MSc. in Applied Ecology at Saint Mary's University on green roof ecology and performance was under the supervision of Dr. Jeremy Lundholm.
