Graduate Students

Danny Gedig (MSc student)
I am an MSc student in the Fussmann Lab researching the effects of anthropogenic change on the freshwater plankton community. To this end, we use both lab and field techniques, such as chemostats and experimental mesocosms, respectively. Before coming to McGill, I completed an honours thesis during my undergraduate degree (BEnvSc) at the University of Manitoba (UM) on mercury contamination of black crappie (Pomoxis nigromaculatus). I continued at UM after graduation by studying carbon cycling in high latitude freshwater and coastal systems. My personal interests include camping, angling and snowboarding, as well as just about anything that gets me outdoors.
