Brett Matthew Culbert
Brett joined the lab in May 2016 as an NSERC USRA student. In September he started his MSc research studying social ascension in the African cichlid, Neolamprologus pulcher. He is investigating the behavioural and physiological changes associated with acquiring breeder status, specifically those dealing with the stress (hypothalamic-pituitary-interrenal) axis. Brett received his B.Sc. in Biology at the University of Ottawa, where he worked with Dr. Katie Gilmour studying chronic social stress in rainbow trout.
