Louis-Etienne Robert (Post-Doc)
Louis is currently investigating how recent and historical spruce budworm defoliation affects fire risk in Ontario's boreal and mixed-wood forests.
Jeremy Larroque (Post-Doc)
Spatial-temporal popualtion genetic of spruce bduworm outbreaks
Simon Legault (PhD Student)
My research project focuses on characterizing the spatial dynamics and estimating the dispersal abilities of key species of SBW parasitoid using landscape ecology and landscape genetic approaches.
Julian Wittische (PhD)
Julian's research examines spatial patterns of neutral and adaptive genetic variation in systems undergoing geographic expansion. His research employ both simulation modelling approaches (e.g., CDPop) and emprical analysis of mountain pine beetle genomic data.
Jennifer Sauri (MSc student)
Modelling the effects of climate-induced changes in phenological synchrony between spruce budworm and host trees on outbreak dynamics
Paul Mayrand (MSc student)
Simulating the consequences of rapid expansion on the detection of loci under selection using landscape genomics (Co-supervised by É. Filotas; TELUQ).
Olivier Pontbriand-Paré (MSc Student)
Spatial patterns in spruce budworm parasitoid diversity in Quebec. (Co-supervised by V. Martel; CFS)
Mathieu Landry (PhD Student)
(Co-supervised with Steven Kembel; UQAM)
Mathieu is interested in spatial and temporal dynamics of the gut microbial community associated with C. fumiferana. He is also investigating how the microbial community benefits the budworm and what effect it may have on budworm parasitism.
