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 https://www.kpu.ca/agc 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 https://wordpress.kpu.ca/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.
