Our fourth LELS GSA research spotlight focuses on Amber Fedus, an MSc Student in Biology.

Amber's research investigates how the human-induced removal of aquatic macrophytes (what we humans might consider "weeds" and shoreline vegetation) affect lake ecosystems, particularly the plankton and fish within those lakes.

In her spotlight, Amber shares stories about her research and path to academia, as well as advice for young Indigenous scholars from her perspective of growing up in Iskatewizaagegan #39 IFN in Treaty 3 outside of Kenora, Ont. To read all about it, visit Amber's spotlight here.
