Brandon is a Biology (BSc) student from Tusket, Nova Scotia. For the past three years, he has spent a great deal of time helping other students through tutoring, study groups, and teaching assistantships. Brandon’s honours thesis project will focus on isolating native marine fungi from intertidal plants and intertidal plant detritus in an attempt to identify fungal strains capable of degrading hydrocarbons (oil spills) in marine environments. When he’s not in the classroom or the lab, Brandon loves to be outdoors hiking, camping, fishing, canoeing, or sailing..
