I am a Research Associate with the Centre for Biodiversity Genomics, University of Guelph.  My research background is in ecology and evolution, mycology, and bioinformatics.  I use environmental DNA and genomics methods to assess biodiversity from soil, water, and freshwater benthic samples to monitor water quality and soil health.  I have a special interest in taxonomic assignment methods and how methodological bias affects the analysis of biodiversity and biomonitoring data.
