I'm a member of the Mandrak Lab, a research lab focused on the ecology and conservation of freshwater fishes, based out of the University of Toronto Scarborough. I work in the Department of Physical and Environmental Sciences with a focus on population biology, climate change, and modelling. Broadly motivated by the vision of a sustainable future, I am interested in a variety of problems and strive to make a positive difference where I can.Contact
A lifelong interest in nature led me to ecology, learning about the threats to nature led me to conservation, then seeing more of the big picture led me to environmental science. Meanwhile, my passion for computing gave me the means to engage with these topics that I was not only curious about, but felt a duty to explore.
The protection and fulfillment of basic human rights depends on the conservation of nature, and I believe an unconventional, collaborative, and interdisciplinary approach is needed to face the global environmental challenges of our time. I endeavour to explore new perspectives and establish relationships that could lead to solutions, while sharing knowledge and connecting with others to help them do the same.
