I am an undergrad thesis student working under the mentorship of Jantina Toxopeus and the greater Sinclair lab. I am working to expand understanding of freeze tolerance in the spring field cricket Gryllus veletis by examining the dynamics of ice formation. Raised in Thunder bay ON, freeze tolerance is something I am acutely acquainted with.

I am currently putting my love of hands on science to good use by crafting a calorimeter capable of measuring insect ice content.  My project focuses on measuring the percent ice content of G. veletis and the relation to freeze time and temperature.

When I’m not on campus I can be found in the kitchen, professionally and recreationally.
