My research centres on controlling phosphorus loss from agricultural lands into surface waters, ensuring that the lake remains a good source of drinking water for them and their livestock, and as well enjoy the aesthetic value of the Lake.

I am working with Indigenous women in Uganda to improve maternal health in rural areas. Guelph has supported me in doing community-based research and pursuing an approach to research that provides meaningful partnerships and results for communities involved.

I investigate how human memory and attention affect perception. Our basic research may lead to applied research in an effort to assist individuals who wish to improve their memory

My advisor is a fantastic mentor and resource. She is always available to answer questions but always initiates the answer by probing further, trying to help her students come to the answer on our own. This teaching and mentorship style helps graduate students to grow and think critically, and overall improve important research and real-life skills.

I plan to pursue a career in food safety & quality assurance after graduation and I think I picked a great program to help me reach that goal. Not only were the courses extremely useful in introducing me into the world of food safety, I was also able to attend a number of career and networking events which helped me meet people who are in the field.
