My research is primarily looking into the interdisciplinary applications of using mathematical modelling in an ecological setting. Currently I am based out of Memorial University, Newfoundland, however I spent the summer of 2019 working closely with Dr. Tal Avgar and colleagues in Utah State University. During this time, I used ideal gas laws to prove the Random Encounter and Staying Time (REST) model, a new innovative approach to measure large-mammal density using camera-trap data.
My career path has not always been clear-cut; I changed my undergraduate degree twice before exploring Ecology as a profession. However, I immediately took to the subject, and hope to use my time as a master’s student to further my academic learning as a research scientist.
