I am a MSc candidate in the Queen's Experimental Ecology and Ecotoxicology (QE3) lab at Queen's University. My research looks at the effects that wastewater produced by the Canadian oil sands industry has on fish. I am interested in how exposure to oil sands wastewater can affect fish physiology and behaviour and how my research can be used to inform water management guidelines in Canada.
