I am investigating the abiotic and biotic factors influencing larval and juvenile development Olympia oysters (Ostrea lurida).  This is BC’s only native species of oyster and is a SARA listed species of special concern.

My Master's thesis is on the use of simple sequence repeat, inter-simple sequence repeat and degenerate molecular markers to distinguish genotypes of Saprolegnia parasitica isolates in aquaculture facilities in British Columbia.  I also have general interest in ecology, evolution, fisheries biology and wildlife management.

Transcriptomic signatures in Aquaculture.
I am currently studying the host-parasite interaction between sea lice and salmon, as well as investigating the effects of various environmental stressors on sea lice gene expression.

Delayed mortality of migrating Pacific salmon following capture and release from fisheries may be attributable to freshwater pathogens and disease development, likely exacerbated by rising river temperatures. These assumptions have not been thoroughly evaluated and have drastic consequences, which include pre-spawn mortality and population decline. My research examines the effects of water temperature and fisheries capture/release on the physiology, pathology, and disease development of Pacific salmon during freshwater migration.
