In support of our vision to create an open, collaborative and approachable community of scientists at BMSC, we are excited to announce that we will be transporting our popular research seminar series to a free online format. Historically, BMSC Seminars have been a great opportunity for on-site BMSC students, staff and researchers to learn from experts in our community about the new discoveries being made in various fields of marine science.
Isabelle Côté is a professor of Marine Ecology in the Department of Biological Sciences at Simon Fraser University. Her interests in marine ecology and conservation are broad. Her recent research focus has been on marine invasive species – measuring their impacts, predicting their spread and devising the best ways to control them. Although much of her work is on tropical habitats, she is also involved in subtidal ecological research on the coast of British Columbia, with projects on invasive crabs and eelgrass resilience. She is passionate about science communication, particularly relating to ocean discovery, and is happiest 10 m below the surface.
