Graduate Student Advisors

The purpose of the GSA positions is to introduce student members of CEW at the start of their careers to the function and goals of the Board of Directors in hopes that, once established, they will develop an interest in chairing a CEW and/or serving on the Board of Directors.

In addition to advising the Board of Directors, the role of the GSA is to assist the Organizing Committee (OC) with the Student Program subcommittee. GSAs have a varied role and duties include evaluating and reporting on the student program to the Board of Directors, providing a level of core consistency for the student program from year to year, orient each new OC of past student events, and providing information of value to the new OC.

Interested in being a GSA for the 2024 and 2025 workshops? Apply today!

Applications due December 31st, 2023. Submit applications to Bonnie Lo.

He is co-supervised by Dr. Mark Hanson (University of Manitoba) and Dr. Jose Luis Rodriguez-Gil (IISD – Experimental Lakes Area). His research focuses on characterizing the ecological risk of chloride salts in Canadian freshwaters using the Lake Winnipeg watershed as a case study. Braedon also completed his Bachelor of Environmental Science (Honours) at the University of Manitoba. During his undergraduate research, he published on invertebrate community responses in outdoor mesocosms as part of a larger study exploring the effectiveness of recycled crushed glass as a substrate in constructed wetlands. Braedon has also contributed to mesocosm studies on the fate and effects of pharmaceuticals, wastewater effluents, and groundwater contaminants, as well as done work on data quality and reporting within ecotoxicology.

Reyd completed her Bachelor of Science (Honours) at the University of Manitoba under the supervision of Dr. Kevin Fraser, where she published her research demonstrating how overwintering artificial light exposure advances purple martin (Progne subis) spring migration timing. Her M.Sc. was completed at the University of Windsor with Dr. Oliver Love, where she published her research on stable isotope niche dynamics and the effects of multiple stressors on breeding phenology and behaviour of Arctic-breeding common eider (Somateria mollissima). For her Ph.D., Reyd is collaborating with the Nunatsiavut Government to research polycyclic aromatic compound exposure patterns and sub-lethal health implications in three harvested seabird species following a local diesel oil spill in 2020.
