Dissertation/ Research Area:

The composition of chars in the Coronation Gulf near Kugluktuk, Nunavut, in partnership with the Kugluktuk Hunters and Trappers Organization, to evaluate the causes for a decline in the number of Arctic char present in the critical local subsistence fishery. I am combining western science, in the form of novel molecular tools and morphological analyses, with traditional knowledge to assess whether climate change has altered the species composition of the fishery.
