I am a fourth year undergraduate student at UNBC pursuing a bachelors degree in Fish and Wildlife. Currently, I am working on an undergraduate thesis using stable isotope analysis to determine trophic positioning between arctic grayling (Thymallus arcticus) and bull trout (Salvelinus confluentus) in the tributaries of the Parsnip watershed. The results of the study will be some of the first dietary analyses of the fish in the Parsnip system and will help managers better understand resource competition both intra and interspecifically. The project is primarily funded by the Peace/Williston Region Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program. My future ambitions are to continue working in the fisheries field in remote systems, assisting managers by conducting management-based research. When not in the field I can be found enjoying a round of disc golf or fishing.
