My research project revolves around cataloging and understanding biodiversity on the central coast of British Columbia. I run biodiversity surveys the Hakai Institute's Calvert Island Observatory that couples intensive collections and quantititative surveys of invertebrates and algae. In one year's time we have amassed a large dataset of ecological, taxonomic, and genetic data. Part of my project involves understanding patterns of biodiversity from these data, and I am also working with the Hakai Institute to develop new methods to quantify ecological dynamics in this understudied and relatively pristine system.
