I am a fourth-year undergraduate student, completing a double degree in Science and Business, where I major in Wildlife Biology, having a love for all wildlife and its conservation. I have joined the Frog Research Team to undertake my Science Capstone research project over two trimesters where I will be working under the supervision of Drs. Laura Grogan and Chantal Lanctot, PhD student Preeti Sharma as well as working with another undergraduate student Jordan McGrath.

Research Overview


I will be investigating the interactive effects of the chytrid-causing Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis and the fire-fighting chemical PHOS-CHeK LC95 on the Fleay’s Barred Frog (Mixophyes fleayi).


Throughout my project I will complete a written report and present a poster about our findings in the hope to help with the conservation of amphibians.
