I am pursuing a Master’s of Science at the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC) in the Natural Resources and Environmental Studies (NRES) Biology program under co-supervision of Dr. Eduardo Martins and Dr. Nikolaus Gantner.  My main research interest involves how a warming environment will affect fish in small lakes, specifically stocked rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) and kokanee (O. nerka).  I am also looking into greater depth on diet composition of wild vs. stocked rainbow trout.  This research will benefit stocking programs at FLNRORD, and ultimately anglers.
