Teaching

During my graduate degree, I was a teaching assistant for three UBC courses in quantitative biology:

  • Biomathematics (Biol 301, instructor: Dr. Sally Otto)
  • Biometrics (Biol 300, instructor: Dr. Michael Whitlock)
  • Applied Ecology and Theoretical Population Dynamics (Biol 408/Zoo 527, instructors: Robert Ahrens and Dr. Carl Walters)

Additionally, I gave guest lectures for an undergraduate course at UBC (Biology 404), a graduate course at the University of Washington (Fish 513), a fisheries quantitative seminar at UBC, and was a teaching assistant and assistant program co-ordinator for the Canadian Field Studies in Africa Program.

In 2008, I was the primary supervisor for a NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Award holder, Stephen Hausch. Stephen (now a PhD student at the University of Calgary) conducted a meta-analysis of steelhead trout residualization rates, which we published in 2012. see abstract or get pdf

At the University of Washington, I am currently co-supervising three research scientists, Daniel Hively, Charmane Ashbrook and Nicole Baker, who are helping to develop our stock status and fishery management attributes databases. Research scientists who have previously been with the project include  Jeannette Banobi, Jessica McCluney, and Edward Wort.
