Dr. Oliver Love

Assistant Professor, Department of Biology, University of Windsor, Canadian Research Chair in Integrative Ecology, Windsor, Ontario

Projects: Chinook and Atlantic salmon physiology, Great Lakes species lipid measurement and validation

We work closely with the Love lab to measure multiple hormones in individuals using various techniques, including non-invasive free cortisol in water samples. We are also working on validating GLIER’s MRI machine that can quickly and non-invasively quantify the lipid content of fish in the Great Lakes.

Dr. Edmund Halfyard

Post-doctoral Fellow, Dalhousie University and GLIER, University of Windsor

Projects: Predation study with bold and shy fish in a semi-natural setting at Leadley Environmental Inc., Essex, Ontario

Dr. Halfyard, with his supervisor  Dr. Aaron Fisk, are working on a project developing a new type of acoustic tracking tag that alters its signal when an individual is depredated and digested. Our contribution to this project is assessing prey behaviour types in the lab before they are released in a semi-natural setting with the predation tags.
