Degree BSc,MSc,PhD
Job type Research
Research Area(s) Pollution , Pollution
Research Activities I study parasite ecology. My research generally falls under the following topics: 1) life cycles and transmission dynamics of aquatic parasites; 2) evolution and biogeography of parasites of fishes and amphibians; 3) use of parasites as indicators of pollution and biodiversity; 4) studies on the distribution and abundance of parasites; and 5) barcoding parasites.
Research Region Canada
