I received my PhD in Zoology from the University of Toronto in 1984 and my MSc in Biology from the University of Waterloo in 1978.
I have been at in the Department of Biology at Laurier since 1986. I served as chair of the department from 2000 to 2009, and since 2009 I have been the academic advisor for undergraduate programs in Biology.
All Biology majors should touch base with me at least once a year to ensure that program requirements are being fulfilled.
I strongly advise that you make an appointment for academic advising issues. An appointment ensures that I have a block of time dedicated to dealing with your problem, and have the appropriate materials at hand to understand the context of the situation. Please book an appointment through Sharon in the Biology Office (email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org, or drop by the Biology Office (N3022B), or Phone: 519.884.0710 x2189).
The main focus of my research has been the structure of benthic invertebrate communities in the streams and rivers of southern Ontario. Most recently, I have studied the invertebrate communities of the Grand River, from the Belwood Conservation Area (Shand Dam) to West Montrose. On the administrative side, I am involved in developing pathways for transition from college programs to university programs, and from university programs to college programs.
I am not accepting graduate students at this time. I am available to serve on the advisory committee for candidates in the Masters of Integrative Biology.
