Since I was a child, I was always interested in the natural world and nature documentaries (anything narrated by David Attenborough really). As I have grown, so has my interest in observing and studying nature. I decided to do my studies in biology at Concordia, in a specialization of ecology, as I have always been interested how plants and animals interact with each other, and their environment. In the last year of my undergraduate studies, I completed my undergraduate thesis in Dr. Pedersen’s lab. My undergraduate thesis focused on determining whether a method called Fisher Information is effective at detecting regime shifts when they occur in simulated models. This summer I will be continuing my undergraduate thesis research to determine what types of regime shifts Fisher Information is able to detect and how Fisher Information functions in the presence of measurement error and ecological variability.
