Biography

I joined the Massachusetts Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit and the Department of Environmental Conservation, UMASS-Amherst in May 2014 as a Master's student. I am researching alewife population dynamics in Eastern Massachusetts. I received my BSc. from McGill University in 2010.
