Research

In May 2018, I received my Master of Science degree through the Great Lakes Institute for Environmental Research (GLIER) at the University of Windsor. While at GLIER, I focused on understanding the impacts of ontogeny, invasive species, and partial migration on the feeding ecology of lake sturgeon (Acipenser fulvescens). This research led to the completion of my thesis and includes suggestions to better manage sub-populations of lake sturgeon throughout the Great Lakes.
