I am a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Manitoba, where I study the energy metabolism and stress physiology of ancient fishes to inform their conservation.
My research with lake sturgeon (Acipenser fulvescens) aims to optimize diets of hatchery-reared fish to improve the success of wild restocking programs. My research with Pacific spiny dogfish (Squalus suckleyi) aims to understand factors that influences the stress response of pelagic sharks as fisheries bycatch. I am also interested in using ancient fishes as models to study the functional evolution of stress responses in vertebrates.
