Wildlife Research Biologist
I grew up on a farm outside of Cut Knife, Saskatchewan. After finishing my BSc in Environmental and Conservation Sciences from UofA, I did my Masters at the University of Saskatchewan, studying niche overlap between elk, mule deer, and white tailed deer, examining their role in local crop damage issues, and the implications for chronic wasting disease transmission. I’ve been with fRI Research since April 2014, when I was brought on with the NRCan Science and Technology Internship Program. My current title is “Wildlife Research Biologist” with the Grizzly Bear Program.
