Search Supervisors

Your supervisor is the key person in your graduate degree program. Supervisors should be available to help their students at every stage, from formulation of their research projects through establishing methodologies and discussing results, to presentation and possible publication of dissertations. Supervisors must also ensure that their students' work meets the standards of the University and the academic discipline.

All prospective Master of Arts (except for Economics major), Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy students must find an appropriate supervisor for their studies before submitting an application. These graduate programs are research-based so it is important to identify and secure a potential supervisor in your desired field of research.

To find a potential supervisor:

  1.  View their profiles below and review several of their publications to familiarize yourself with their work
  2. Contact them by filling out the form available on their profile pages
  3. Ensure you provide all the details requested on the form and submit a completed form

If interested, potential supervisor will follow up with you (please allow a few business days). Please note that he or she may request additional information.

Research Expertise: My research explores the source of this tacit, structural knowledge and how it comes to influence our performance in classification, recognition, and recall, and how it influences our and other animal's biases and preferences. Previous research suggests that the knowledge that is the source of these influences is not in the form of high-level abstractions such as rules or prototypes, but rather remains latent in and distributed over our memory for specific episodes of experience. These memories are recruited collectively in response to a similar current event to provide a feeling of familiarity or "rightness" or a fluidity to our responding to events consistent with the structure of those we've experienced in similar situations. This retrieval also provides, however, for the ability to detect immediately when an event is inconsistent with structure, even if we are unable to articulate how we "know" it. Part of my research explores a model of such memory and retrieval processes that would allow for this implicit learning and use of structure in both people and animals. The model is in the form of an artificial neural network applied to low-level representations of the individual events, such as pixel-maps of images or digitised sound samples.

Research Expertise: Freshwater animals rely on chemicals dissolved in the water that provide information about the location of food, the risk of predation, or even the reproductive status of potential mates. Environmental contaminants from human activities, such as industrial operations (e.g., mining, smelting) or surface runoff from cities, can interfere with an animal's ability to perceive and respond to these important chemical cues. Failure to respond to these cues can lead to starvation, an inability to avoid a predator, or impaired reproduction. Research conducted in my lab focuses on understanding the causes and consequences of contaminant-induced chemosensory impairment in freshwater animals. We work on animals that represent several different trophic levels typical of freshwater ecosystems, including bottom-dwelling (benthic) invertebrates, zooplankton, fishes, and amphibians. We test chemosensory function by using behavioural or neurophysiological assays in animals before and after they have been exposed to environmental contaminants. By developing an understanding of how low concentrations of environmental contaminants can affect chemosensory function among aquatic animals, we can improve our ability to evaluate ecological risk. Good ecological risk assessments are critical for managing industrial or municipal receiving waters.

Research Expertise: Dr. Pope's research interests fall under the sport and exercise psychology umbrella with two specific programs of research. Her first area of research revolves around examining the effectiveness of health promotion messages that focus on facilitating the initiation and long-term engagement in physical activity. In particular, Dr. Pope is interested in applying the Comprehensive Messaging Strategy to Sustained Behavior Change which tailors information presented in messages to the recipients' stage of change while framing it to focus on intrinsic goals and self-determined motivation. Secondly, Dr. Pope is part of a multi-institutional team that developed and is currently managing the Sport Psychology for Coaches website. This website is a free evidence informed resource designed to provide coaches (as well as athletes or parents) with information about sport psychology skills, practical activities they can use, and opportunities to interact with other coaches and sport psychology experts. The website was launched in 2017 and will be a focus of Dr. Pope's research as her team explores the effectiveness of this resource to translate sport psychology information to the coaches and athletes that will use it.

Research Expertise: My research group is mainly focused on Ultra High Vacuum (UHV) Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM). With this microscope, we study adsorbates bonded to surfaces as well as the controlled manipulation of atoms and molecules on surfaces. In the past my research activities have included STM studies of semiconductor heterostructures as well as soft X-Ray absorption and fluorescence from novel semiconductor materials. Recently I have been actively involved in using cantilevers such as used in Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) to test Newtonian dynamics at very low levels of acceleration i.e. near 1e-10 m/s^2.

Research Expertise: My primary research interests lay in the diverse fields of Hebrew Bible studies. I am particularly interested in integrating historical and literary analysis of both narrative and prophetic writings in the Hebrew Bible. This work has resulted in a monograph on the book of King as a statements of ethnic, national and religious identity for Persian-era Judaism, arguing that this identity is portrayed as relevant not only to those living in the Judah, but to those who remained in the Diaspora. I have also written a number of articles dealing with the dating of Kings, the need for a new approach to prophetic literature, and literary studies of the books of Amos and Joel and Psalm 22. A commentary on the book of Amos, entitled "Amos and the Cosmic Imagination" is in the final stages of preparation for Ashgate Publishers.

Research Expertise: Local Food Systems Project The number of people in North America who shop regularly at farmers' markets has grown remarkably over the last several decades. This development has been loosely attributed to factors ranging from changing consumer preferences regarding food, to concerns over the conventional agri-food system. However, with some exceptions the growing popularity of farmers' markets has attracted scant attention from researchers. Consquently, there are many interesting questions to answer and areas to explore. The following four objectives inform the Local Food Systems Project: 1. To document costumer shopping patterns and preferences. 2. To develop demographic and geographic profiles of those who regularly shop at farmers' markets. 3. To determine the factors and values which motivate people who shop at farmers' markets. 4. To assist the operators of participating farmers' markets to better understand their custumer base.

Research Expertise: Dr. Hontela's general area of interest is Endocrine Toxicology, study of the effects of toxicants on the endocrine system that regulates physiological functions through hormones. Specifically, she is investigating in teleost fishes and amphibians the effects of pollutants on the adrenal function and corticosteroid hormones such as cortisol and corticosterone. These hormones have an important role in metabolism, osmoregulation and the immune function. Some environmental pollutants disrupt the intracellular pathways leading to synthesis of corticosteroids, with consequences on animal's health. Ongoing studies in Dr. Hontela's laboratory focus on health assessment of aquatic species exposed to agri-chemicals and metals such as selenium, in Western Canada and investigations of the mechanisms through which adrenotoxic chemicals interfere with the normal synthesis of corticosteroid hormones. Field studies, together with in vitro bioassays and pharmacological tests are used to better understand the effects of specific pollutants on the endocrine system of fish and amphibians. Data from such studies are needed for Ecological Risk Assessment, the process evaluating safety of new chemicals released into the aquatic environment.

Research Expertise: Primary areas of interest include Japanese Buddhism and the cross-cultural exchange between Asia and the West that has shaped the development of modern Buddhism worldwide in the past century and a half. This has included research on Buddhism in Canada, such as Jodo Shinshu in southern Alberta, as well as research in Asia, Europe, and the United States. Secondary areas of interest include Scholarly Approaches to the Study and Teaching of Religion (see sastor.com) as well as the co-authored (both with Hillary Rodrigues) Introduction to the Study of Religion (Routledge 2009) and follow-up The Study of Religion: A Reader (2013). Recent projects include: editing the volume, Studying Buddhism in Practice (2012), for a new Routledge series, Studying Religions in Practice (Hillary Rodrigues, series editor); and serving as one of the authors and one of three editors (with Victor Sogen Hori and Alexander Soucy) for Flowers on the Rock: Global and Local Buddhisms in Canada (McGill-Queens University Press in 2014). This volume, which analyzes the dramatic growth of Buddhism in Canada in global and historical contexts, both follows up on our co-edited book, Wild Geese: Studies of Buddhism in Canada (MQUP, 2010), and launches our current five-year SSHRC research project, "The Modernization of Buddhism in Global Perspective".

Research Expertise: Ecology and evolution of host/parasite interactions – The focus in my lab is on the ecology and evolution of animal parasites and their hosts. In our parasite-centred focus, we are interested in how natural selection shapes patterns of parasite growth, development, reproduction, and life-histories. In our host-centred focus, we seek to understand the nature of parasite-induced effects on host individuals and host populations, and how such effects impact the evolution of their hosts. Some of the topics we currently investigate are: Context-dependent outcomes in trematode/fish and virus/amphibian interactions Altered behaviour in trematode-infected ants and minnows Ecology of multi-parasitism Behavioural defenses of hosts to parasitism Population genetic structure of larval and adult Dicrocoelium Evolution and phylogeny of the trematode genus, Ornithodiplostomum Feeding and encystment strategies of larval trematodes Ecology and evolution of the monogenean trematode, Gyrodactylus olfactorius (n. sp.) in minnows Applied parasitology – I am interested in where and when domestic animals that graze on pasture are most at risk of infection with gastro-intestinal worms. A further focus is to clarify the production costs associated with infection. Our overall aim is to provide information to producers that will help them develop optimal treatment regimes for the control of worms. We combine experiments involving experimentally-infected hosts, development of immuno-diagnostic tools, application of geographical information systems, and standard host surveys to answer the following questions: How are parasites transmitted within communities of grazing animals that share pasture? Where and when are cattle most at risk of infection with worms in Alberta? Do larvae of common worms in cattle overwinter on Alberta pastures? Can worm antigens that are present in host feces be used to identify ‘wormy’ individuals in a herd? Ecology of emerging parasites and pathogens – Emerging pathogens and parasites are recognized as important threats to global biodiversity. We have a poor understanding of how these emerging parasites and pathogens enter populations of wild and domestic hosts in Alberta. Furthermore, we have a poor understanding of their consequences for new host populations, and we rarely understand the factors that promote or constrain their subsequent spread into novel areas and novel hosts. Current areas of emphasis are: Landscape epidemiology of invasive lancet liver fluke in ants and snails in Alberta Ecological epidemiology of an emerging virus (ATV) in endangered populations of blotched tiger salamander in Alberta Enemy-release and parasitism of the invasive snail, Radix auricularia, in southern Alberta wetlands Prairie biodiversity and conservation ­– The landscape in Southern Alberta comprises a mosaic of habitats that are dominated by short- and mixed-grass prairie that is characteristic of the Northern Great Plains. The natural history of the region is spectacular for its biodiversity. Our focus lies in determining key demographic characteristics of poorly-known animal taxa that are potentially threatened in this region: Oreohelid land snails, especially O. cooperi and Oreohelix sp. that may be endemic to the Cypress Hills region of Southeastern Alberta Unionid clams, particularly within biodiversity hotspots in the Battle River in central Alberta, and its tributaries Blotched tiger salamander, Ambystoma mavortium, in foothills habitats where emerging Ambystoma tigrinum virus (ATV) is common Long-toed salamander, Ambystoma macrodactylum, in foothills and montane regions of the northern Rocky Mountains

Research Expertise: The Earth is being influenced by environmental changes such as elevated atmospheric trace gas concentrations and associated shifts in climate. There is much uncertainty about the consequences of these changes for ecosystem function and for potential feedbacks to the climate system. Terrestrial ecosystems, in particular, present a significant problem for analyzing global change because of the great diversity among ecosystems in species composition, physiological properties, physical structure and environmental conditions. A major objective of my research program is to further understand the fundamental processes that occur during terrestrial ecosystem-atmosphere interactions. In my research I make use of tools and technologies from a range of disciplines (plant physiology, ecology, geochemistry and meteorology). I am currently studying ecosystem CO2, water vapor and energy exchange using the eddy covariance technique in grassland and peatland ecosystems in Alberta as part of the Fluxnet-Canada and Ameriflux research networks. These long-term measurement programs contribute in a number of ways to better understand ecosystem response to global environmental change. In collaboration with Canadian colleagues, measurements of ecosystem-level CO2, water and energy exchange at my research sites have been used to test and evaluate the ecosys and CLASS models. Both the ecosys and CLASS models are being used to support studies of carbon accounting and management. In addition, the CLASS model is used as a component in the Canadian Regional and Global Climate models. Interaction and feedback between vegetation and the atmosphere occurs via exchanges of CO2 and H2O gases during photosynthesis, evapo-transpiration, and respiration. On seasonal and annual time scales, changes in the stable isotope ratio of atmospheric CO2 result from isotope effects that occur during these ecosystem-atmosphere gas exchange processes. Monitoring shifts in the stable isotope ratio of atmospheric CO2 can potentially be used as a tool to study large-scale ecosystem-atmosphere interactions. Such an application requires, however, a detailed understanding of the mechanisms causing the isotope effects. A long-term objective of my research program is to determine the physiological mechanisms causing stable isotope fractionation during photosynthesis, transpiration, and respiration at both the leaf and ecosystem levels. We have recently developed a mechanistic, ecosystem-scale model of stable carbon isotope effects that occur during photosynthesis and respiration. This model is currently being applied and tested with empirical measurements made during the Fluxnet-Canada program at several research sites across the country. We have also recently completed a synthesis study involving our stable isotope measurements in Canada in comparison with similar measurements made at Ameriflux sites in the USA. Remote sensing of biophysical properties of the land surface combined with climate data potentially allows calculation and extrapolation of ecological and physiological characteristics of ecosystems to larger spatial scales. The MODIS sensor on the Aqua and Terra satellites launched by NASA collects surface reflectance data and uses this data in conjunction with ecosystem models to calculate a variety of physiological and ecological attributes of ecosystems on a global basis. Testing of the relationships between the reflectance characteristics of vegetation and associated physiological changes is an important aspect of current research being conducted to evaluate the performance and quality of information provided by the MODIS sensor. My grassland research site is one of a select number of research sites chosen for testing and evaluating the MODIS calculations used to convert reflectance measurements into ecosystem physiological and ecological information. Peatland ecosystems are very tightly coupled to climate and the hydrological cycle, and are very susceptible to the effects of climate change. Relatively small changes in soil moisture and temperature can dramatically alter carbon cycling in peatlands. For example, warmer temperatures and a lowering of the water table may increase the release of CO2 and convert these ecosystems from a net sink to a net source of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. Shifts in the water table may also influence the production and release of methane to the atmosphere. I have initiated studies of the controls on methane exchange to complement my on-going studies of CO2 and water vapor exchange in peatlands in northern Alberta.

Research Expertise: Dr. Copeland's main research interests are the effect of physical activity and sedentary behaviour on health across the lifespan, with a particular focus on healthy ageing. Her research includes both experimental work and analysis of large data sets. Recently, Dr. Copeland co-organized, with Dr. Shilpa Dogra, a CIHR-funded consensus meeting of international experts on sedentary behaviour and healthy ageing. She is also interested in the impact of movement behaviours on stress resilience and is currently studying the effect of physically active lifestyles on allostatic load. Dr. Copeland has expertise in the assessment of movement behaviours using both self-report and objective measures, such as accelerometers. Dr. Copeland's laboratory, the Active Healthy Aging Lab, has received funding from CIHR, CFI, PolicyWise for Children and Families, the Sport Science Association of Alberta, and other agencies. Dr. Copeland is passionate about translating research into knowledge so that her work can ultimately contribute to improving population health. To achieve that goal she regularly collaborates with community partners and stakeholders, and takes every opportunity to present and explain the evidence of why people of all ages should move more and sit less!

Topics: 

I use molecular markers to study various evolutionary and ecological aspects of natural populations and how they relate to physical (e.g. glaciers) and non-physical (e.g. foraging patterns) barriers. Much of my research focuses on vertebrates examining a range of topics from mating systems, hybrization, population structure and systematics.

Research Expertise: My area of interest lies in cultural and environmental anthropology with a focus on rurality, rural/urban relations, local knowledge, environmental history, northern environments, and ideas of place. More specifically, my work thus far has focused on rural and northern Canadian settler populations, and the areas of agriculture, hunting, trapping, environmentalism and forestry. I am interested in how people understand place, how contemporary environmental understandings can be grounded in historic interpretations, and how knowledge of place can be relevant and pertinent knowledge in the face of development.

Research Expertise: Dr. Adams was recently appointed a Tier II Board of Governors Research Chair in the Humanities (2017-2019). Her research interests include historical and sociological inquiry of sport, recreation and leisure. She is currently working on two major research projects. The Nikkei Memory Capture Project is a trans-national oral history collaboration (with Dr. Darren Aoki at Plymouth University, UK) exploring the stories of Japanese Canadians in southern Alberta after the Second World War. Her SSHRC (Sport Participation Research Initiative) funded project, in collaboration with Dr. Hart Cantelon, explores issues of community revitalization and rural survival in Southern Alberta through a case study of the Warner Hockey School in Warner, Alberta. Dr. Adams received a B.H.K from the University of Windsor (2001) and a Ph.D. from The University of Western Ontario (2007). She is a founding member of the Centre for Oral History and Tradition. Dr. Adams supervises students in the Kinesiology and Cultural, Social and Political Thought MA and PhD majors and she is currently accepting graduate students.
