While not one of my study species, I was super excited to bycatch a juvenile Golden-winged Warbler (Vermivora chrysoptera), a species that has been declining in southern Canada and norther United States.
Captured on Queen's University Biological Station property, June 2016.

My research interest is to better understand the physiological and behavioural adaptations of birds to pathogenic infection and how these adaptations affect fitness during critical life-history stages, insofar migration.
I am currently working as a postdoctoral researcher at Louisiana State University (USA) investigating the relationship between stress and immunity with Dr. Christine Lattin.
I recently completed my PhD at Western University (Canada) exploring how infectious disease affects migratory behaviour and physiology of songbirds during migration.
I completed my MSc at Western University (2014) examining how parasitism and immunity of song sparrows is affected by individual migration distances.
I completed my BSc Hons. at Trent University (2012) and it was there my passion for research took off when I completed an honours thesis exploring the effects of egg composition on the growth and immunity of japanese quail.
