Clémentine is a postdoctoral researcher in Dr. Sarah C Woolley's lab at the Stewart biology department since February 2022. She is passionate about neuroethology, a field that brings together neurosciences, comparative cognition and behavior. Her first postdoctoral project at McGill aims to investigate the neuronal substrate of in-flight perception in songbirds (Zebra finch) and involves both movement tracking and electrophysiology recordings. She holds a PhD in Neurosciences that she completed in Marseille (Institut de neurosciences de la Timone, France) on vocal perception in two primate species: humans and macaques.

I am interested in the effects of pollution on wildlife “health” particularly, the long-term physiological effects post-exposure. I come from a background ecology and conservation, and later got passionate by animals physiology and eco-toxicology. I completed my MSc in France and Switzerland working on hoopoes parental feeding behaviour. During my PhD at Western University (ON, Canada) I studied the effect of methylmercury exposure on bird’s physiology and seasonal transition. At my current post-doctoral position at McGill University, I am examining the effect of chlorpyrifos pesticide exposure in the brain of European starlings.

I am a postdoc in the Weber Lab, investigating how the material properties of phase-separated nuclear bodies affect their functional roles, such as gene expression regulation, in C. elegans using quantitative microscopy. Prior to this, during my PhD, I studied the roles played by nuclear bodies in genome organization and developed a genomic approach to measure large-scale (~kilobases) chromatin compaction.

Egor is studying anthropogenic effects on lake ecosystems using the Large Array of Experimental Ponds (LEAP) at the Gault Nature Reserve. Specifically, his experiment focuses on how nutrient pollution can destabilize phytoplankton and zooplankton communities within meta-ecosystems (multiple connected ecosystems). Through this research, he hopes to help explain how connectivity mediates or exacerbates the destabilizing effect of nutrient pollution. Photo: Alex Tran, Gault Nature Reserve.

I'm an ecologist interested in the relationships among biodiversity, ecosystem functioning and global change. Currently, I focus on developing multi-species connectivity models in fragmented landscapes. With this work, I aim to support the implementation of connectivity conservation networks that effectively safeguard biodiversity across local, regional and national scales.

Imge received a BSc in Pharmacology (2013) from McGill University, and her MSc (2018) and PhD (2022) in Biology from Concordia University. Imge loves anything related to cell division, so during her graduate studies she characterized cytokinesis in the two-cell C. elegans embryo and explored how a chromatin-sensing pathway functions during cytokinesis in vivo. As a postdoc, she is continuing to study the C. elegans embryo as a model system to understand how the spindle assembly checkpoint can function differently from one cellular context to another.

I worked and am working on dissecting and reconstituting biological complexes--it is for work and for fun.

I am interested in understanding how biodiversity is changing across the planet and the factors that may influence our understanding of such processes. I am now developing and applying biodiversity models and indicators to support conservation decisions and planning for Canada’s protected area network, particularly focusing on spatial planning and prioritisation for connectivity.
