Bio/Research

My interest in aquatic organisms began at an early age as I grew up fishing on the Rideau River system in Ontario. This was reinforced and focused in my undergraduate and graduate degrees where I developed my interests in physiology and biochemistry. My Ph.D. at the University of British Columbia with Peter Hochachka fixed my interests in the mechanisms of biochemical adaptation. My current research examines the metabolic design of aquatic organisms in both an adaptive and an evolutionary context. Click on "Research Interests" for more information on specific projects.

I was a NSERC University Research Fellow for the first 10 years of my appointment at the University of Guelph. I have been a panel member and Chair of the NSERC Strategic Grants Biosciences panel and am currently a member of the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors of the Huntsman Marine Science Centre in St. Andrews, New Brunswick.
