Claire completed her B.Sc. at the University of Guelph in the Environmental Science program in 2019. She then joined the Fisk Lab at the University of Windsor where she is currently co-supervised by Graham Raby and Aaron Fisk for her graduate work. Her research focuses on the comparative functional ecology of bowfin and largemouth bass, two sympatric but phylogenetically distant warmwater piscivores. For her work, she's integrating a variety of tools including stable isotopes, respirometry, and heart rate loggers.
