Dr. Paul Spence

Paul grew up listening to frogs near a small pond in central Canada, and didn’t see the ocean until his 13th year. His early love for the ocean was fostered by watching Jacques Cousteau on television. Paul attended the University of Victoria for 16 years as an undergraduate and graduate student in the Physics and…

Dr. Tim Higham

“I am an Associate Professor at the University of California, Riverside, and I’m interested in the ecological and evolutionary biomechanics of locomotion and feeding in marine and freshwater fishes, snakes, and lizards. This necessarily integrates field and laboratory research, with the ultimate goal of understanding how animals function in relation to natural variation in ecology.…

Dr. Stephanie Peacock

“I am a wildlife disease ecologist who studies the ecological and environmental factors mediating host-parasite interactions, mostly using math! I have worked on a range of study systems from sea louse parasites on Pacific salmon to gastrointestinal nematodes of barren-ground caribou. I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Calgary. My first visit…

Dr. Greg Garrard

“BMSC means a lot to me because my granddad worked at the cable station in Bamfield in the 1940s, and my dad was brought up here. I proposed the first ever literature course at BMSC in 2016 because I wanted to ‘return’ to this ancestral place, but also because I wanted to teach environmental criticism…

Dr. Katy Hind

Dr. Katy Hind’s research examines the biodiversity and evolutionary history of seaweeds. In particular, she combines traditional and molecular classification techniques to gain a more holistic understanding of algal diversity. Currently, she is using an integrative taxonomic approach to classify species diversity in a unique group of red seaweed, the coralline algae. Due to…

Dr. Mike Hart

“I grew up in Edmonton and was an undergraduate at the University of Alberta. I first came to BMSC in 1982 to work with Rich Palmer on drilling snail predators and their barnacle prey, and came back the next summer to work wtih Don Ross on predation by sea stars on swimming anemones. I’m currently…
