Campus Representatives

Kevin Anderson (ROM)

Kevin is an M.Sc. student in the Kvist lab. He is studying Reichenowia, a group of rhizobial bacteria that have taken up residence within the throats of leeches. They appear to be synthesizing nutrients that the leeches cannot obtain from a blood-only diet. Rumor has it he is still asking the ROM management for the WiFi password.

Vicki Zhang (UTM)

Vicki is a Master’s student in the Kotanen Lab studying invasive species in the subarctic. Like an undercover spy, she passes information from UTM to UTSG, except she’s probably the most conspicuous, un-secret agent you know. She also likes (in no particular order) lifting heavy things, racing athletes on Strava, dragon boat, dragonflies, and plants with funny names.

Athmaja Viswanath

I am a PhD student in the Cutter lab trying to understand how new species are formed by studying interspecies hybrids of the tiny but cool Caenorhabditis nematodes. In my free time I love to do art and watch true-crime documentaries. I am always up for Tea (Chai) or hot chocolate no matter what the weather or time of the day it is!!

Rachel Giles

Rachel is PhD student in the Rochman Lab. She studies plastic pollution and other gross (but cool!) things in urban streams and rivers.

Hit her up if you need a long chat, an air hug, or a giant listening ear.

Sophie Breitbart

Sophie is a PhD student in the Johnson and Wagner labs studying how urbanization affects the ecology and evolution of common milkweed. When she’s not in the lab, you can find her botanizing the weeds growing in Toronto’s sidewalks or playing the ukulele. If science doesn’t work out, she plans to open a B&B in the wilderness.
