I earned my PhD in Ecology and Evolution at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire. My research focus has been on freshwater communities, especially amphibians. I also have a passion for statistics and this combined with my interest in ecological modelling has enabled me to generate computer-intensive statistical methods for difficult to analyze data. Most recently my focus in on using Bayesian statistical techniques.
My career experience has spanned post-doctoral positions in Tallahassee, FL and Toronto, ON, a faculty position at Brock University in Ontario, and as a Research Associate at the Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre in Bamfield, BC. Within those job descriptions I have successfully gained national funding in both the United States and Canada, taught a variety of courses at the undergraduate and graduate level, including field ecology courses, supervised many undergraduate honour’s thesis students and graduate students and been external reviewer for PhD thesis students. I have also peer-reviewed text books and numerous journal articles.
I now live in London, Ontario and I welcome the opportunity to do freelance work. In the past I have acted as a statistical consultant, manuscript editor, and PowerPoint slide creator.(That is the brief version about me. For a longer version see the About Me page!)
