MSc with Kai Chan, 2022
Biodiversity conservation, Ecology, Ecosystem services
Julia was a MSc student in the CHANS Lab, supervised by Dr. Kai Chan. She graduated from Carleton University with a combined honours in Humanities and Biology. In her undergraduate research, she explored hearing in various species of butterflies and tested their behavioural responses to various auditory stimuli. For her graduate research, she has turned her attention to slightly larger flying creatures. At IRES, she researched bats in cities and how bat boxes may be used to facilitate their residence in urban spaces. When she is not studying biology, she can be found admiring 19th century art, reading fiction, or cycling distances more sensibly done by foot or car.
