Education: Current - PhD candidate – Université Bourgogne Franche-Comté, Besancon, France, under the supervision of Dr. Patrick Giraudoux, Dr. Jean-François Cosson, and Dr. Eve Afonso, in which I am using high-throughput sequencing and metabarcoding approaches to describe bacterial assemblages in the fossorial water vole Arvicola terrestris and relate these assemblages to changes in host population densities. 2014 - M.Sc. in Zoology - University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, under the supervision of Dr. Charles Krebs and Dr. Roy Turkington, in which I used motion-detecting camera traps in conjunction with live trapping and mark-recapture to determine if small mammal densities can be estimated using camera detection rates. Thesis: Estimating Population Densities of Peromyscus Maniculatus, Clethrionomys rutilus, Lepus americanus, and Tamiasciurus hudsonicus in the Boreal Forest of Southwestern Yukon Territory, Canada 2011 - B.Sc. (Honours) in Ani
