My name is Jackie, and I am an insect physiologist currently pursuing my PhD at Western University in London, Ontario, Canada. I have always been fascinated by animals of all shapes and sizes, and how they function so beautifully in the environments they are adapted to. I am especially interested in insects because they make up ~80% of all animal species, inhabit some of the most physiologically unfavourable environments on earth, and are just so darn cute.

While constantly pipetting miscellaneous liquids into tubes to answer questions about insect physiology, I am also a heavy advocate for the creative communication of science. No science is good science unless it is communicated effectively, creatively, and in an exciting way!

Feel free to browse my website to learn more about my research interests, view a sample of my science graphics, and learn some tips for creative science communication.

More of the website coming soon!
