Areas of Interest

I have been teaching at the post-secondary level since 2009 and I started in the Biology Department at KPU in Spring 2016. I am passionate about teaching and research in the areas of ecology, evolution and plant biology. I have diverse research experience and interests within those areas including: plant population ecology, reproductive isolation, mating behaviour, invasive species, insect population dynamics, and biological control. My research program in the Applied Genomics Centre is focussed on ornamental plant breeding. Current projects include plant tissue culture, hybrid breeding, whole genome duplication, and mutation breeding in a variety of genera. I am also a member of KPU Wildspaces, an interdisciplinary collective investigating place-based education and working to expand resources for taking the classroom outside on the KPU campus and beyond. I am always excited for the opportunity to partner with students and faculty collaborators in the research areas I have mentioned here or to help you investigate something new that you are excited about.
