Taking care of the planet

Canada is a vast northern country with an abundance of wildlife, plants, water, and other natural resources. But these resources are under threat from climate change, increased urbanization, and agriculture. That’s why many of our researchers are working on issues related to water management, protection, treatment, and optimization as well as ecosystem biodiversity and the conservation of marine, wildlife, and plant species.

I’m fascinated by biodiversity. It inspires me to investigate the interplay between evolutionary and genomic processes that cause a species to form two reproductively distinct species.
