Students &  Research Questions

Post Doctoral Fellows

Sarah Fortune
How adaptable are bowhead and North Atlantic right whales to environmental change?

Jérôme Spitz


PhD Candidates 

Benjamin Nelson
Multi-species modeling of predator/prey interactions between pinnipeds and Pacific salmon in the Strait of Georgia.

 

Rachel Neuenhoff
Using a multispecies population dynamics model approach to determine to what extent gray seal predation impacts Atlantic cod fishery recovery.  Also, I’ll be exploring management options that mitigate predation effect

 

Rhea  Storlund
Exploring how pinniped cardiovascular anatomy and physiology relates to diving ability

 

 

Ron Togunov
Looking at the foraging patterns of Arctic marine mammals in stochastic and changing environments. How habitat variability and anthropogenic climate change affect the foraging efficiency of beluga whales, narwhals, and polar bears.

MSc Students

rheaSelina Agbayani – MSc IRES
Modelling gray whale migration routes and foraging habitat in the face of climate change

 

Zach Scherker – MSc MMRU
Opportunistic foragers (brown trout, sculpins, common mergansers, North American river otters, American mink, and Pacific harbour seals) are suspected of preying on juvenile salmon in rivers and estuaries—and may account for critical low numbers of Chinook salmon in British Columbia.
