Olivia Coffield


Olivia is a recent McMaster graduate from the department of biology whose love of animals and interest in environmental conservation brought her to ABEL. She joined the lab this  past summer as a PNB 3QQ3 and 4QQ3 student, and worked with PhD student Sina Zarini to better understand the mating behaviour of the invasive round goby. Her research projects focussed on the paternity of gobies and the success of alternate reproductive techniques displayed by two different morphs: sneakers and guarders.   Olivia continues to visit and volunteer in the lab, helping out Team Goby with their current work. When she’s not in the lab or in class Olivia spends her time drawing.
