I am a graduate student at the University of Regina, studying several species of bats and how they respond behaviourally to energetically stressful or challenging situations (like pregnancy or healing).
I completed my BSc Hons. at the University of Winnipeg in 2013 where I studied the behaviour of bats with White-nose syndrome. Since then, I've been interested in small mammals and the unique energetic challenges they face and the role that behaviour can play in offsetting these challenges.
I'm currently writing my MSc thesis, which will explore the energetic implications of roost selection in reproductive silver-haired bats. I also work in collaboration with the Saskatchewan Science Centre to rescue and study the bats that the citizens of Regina find during the winter.
