Marine Ecologist

Margot is keen to explore the coastal ecology of BC from Passing Cloud. As a field biologist, she investigates ecological dynamics in changing coastal systems. Her post-doctorate, with the Hakai Network at Simon Fraser University, is based on the BC Central Coast, where she helps to lead a project examining Pacific herring. She works with local First Nations and spends time underwater investigating herring spawning events from a fish-eye perspective. Margot recently completed her PhD at Oregon State University. She hopes to share her knowledge of estuaries, seagrasses, and the interconnectedness of coastal systems with others aboard Passing Cloud.
