Connie (Constance) O'Connor
- Conservation Scientist position
- Wildlife Conservation Society, Canada
- Leading the Northern Boreal Freshwater Program
Connie studies behavioural and physiological ecology. Her integrative research at McMaster University combines genomic, physiological, and behavioural tools to understand the evolution of social behaviour in cichlid fishes, and to understand how social behaviour is influenced by environmental perturbations. Connie received her B.Sc. from McGill University, where she studied cichlid gill morphology in hypoxic environments. She completed her Ph.D. at Carleton University, with Dr. Steve Cooke, and was co-supervised by Dr. Katie Gilmour. She investigated how individual variation in physiology and behaviour relates to fitness and population-level processes in centrarchid fishes. Connie joined the Balshine lab as an E.B. Eastburn postdoctoral fellow in 2011, and has been an NSERC postdoctoral fellow since 2013. Connie is co-mentored by Dr. Nadia Aubin-Horth.

Cody joined the lab in January 2010 and is studying dominance, communication and social structure in cooperatively breeding birds and fishes. He received his BSc. from the University of Ottawa where he worked with Drs. Steve Cooke and Katie Gilmour on parental care behaviour in smallmouth bass. Cody is supported by an NSERC CGS and is co-supervised by Dr. Jim Quinn.
