I am a master's student in the School of Environment Resources and Sustainability, in the Combined Water Program. Previously I completed my Honours Bachelor of Environmental Earth Science at Lakehead University. My undergraduate thesis focused on monitoring the stability and viability of a remediated stream in Nipigon Bay, focusing on Coaster Brook Trout habitat requirements and stream morphology. I am interesting in creating true sustainability and working towards repairing current environmental damage and preventing future problems where possible. My research will focus on micro plastic pollution in freshwater systems and the impacts associated with micro plastics.
