I recently completed my MSc. degree in biology at the start of 2023 under the supervision of Dr. Roland Hall and Dr. Brent Wolfe. My project used analyses of sediment cores taken from lakes in the Smoky and Wabasca river watersheds to reconstruct past changes in lake hydrology.
I just completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Waterloo in Biology. I have enjoyed taking courses related to ecology, wetlands, and conservation biology. I’m excited to be working as a Field Technician for the summer, helping with a variety of projects in the Waterloo Wetland Lab.
I received my bachelor's in Environmental Studies from the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy in Ukraine.
Now I am a participant in a research exchange program in Canada. I am currently working as a Research Technician at the Waterloo Wetland Laboratory.
I recently completed my Master’s looking into the effects of microplastic pollution on benthic macroinvertebrates. My research was part of the pELAstic project at the IISD-Experimental Lakes Area (ELA). I have always been passionate about the outdoors and conducting field work at the ELA was an absolute honour.
