Education
  • PhD McGill University, Biology 1985
  • MSc McGill University, Biology 1981
  • BSc McGill University, Biology 1978


  • Research
    My research focuses on animal behaviour. I use a behavioural ecology approach, that is I aim to understand how the ecology of a species contributes to their behavioural characteristics. The characteristics that interest me the most are those that concern procurement, in other words the search and consumption of food.
