Our lab is located in the department of Biology at the University of Ottawa in Ottawa, Canada.

PhD position: I am currently seeking a PhD student who would be jointly advised by Dr. Jessica Forrest in our department. Jessica and I have a long term dataset on flowering phenologies and pollinator abundance, diversity and nesting in a temperate woodland ecosystem. We are looking for a strong student who could carry this work forward through a PhD. Please inquire with either of us for more information. The offer includes four years of funding (may require TA’ing, depending on external funding). The University of Ottawa offers a tuition waiver to students with an 80% or better GPA in their last two years of study (
