Dr. Krystal Nunes
I joined the Department of Chemistry and Biology at Toronto Metropolitan University in January 2022 as a discipline-based education researcher. My research expertise is in both pedagogy and ecology (specifically invasive plant ecology). I was a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Toronto Mississauga (2020-2021) where I worked with Dr. Fiona Rawle and Dr. Nicole Laiberté. I obtained my PhD in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (2017) from the University of Toronto under the supervision of Dr. Peter Kotanen.

INTERESTED IN JOINING OUR TEAM?
Current Opportunities: I am looking to recruit a Master's student to begin 2023.
Potential graduate students: I am a faculty advisor in the Environmental Applied Science and Management program at Toronto Metropolitan University (TMU). Subject to funding availability, I welcome motivated and inquisitive students to apply. Prior research experience (e.g., lab volunteer, undergraduate thesis, independent research projects) is considered an asset; members of historically underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply. See the Environmental Applied Science and Management (MASc or PhD) website for admission requirements.
Postdocs: Please email me to discuss research goals and potential projects. I am open to support applications for research grants such as the Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship (due September).
Undergraduate students: There are many opportunities to gain research experience at TMU. Please contact me if interested in SCI999, BLG40, or Undergraduate Research Opportunity (URO) programs.
If interested in applying, please send a copy of your CV, an unofficial transcript (potential undergraduate and graduate students only) and a brief summary of your research interests to firstname.lastname@example.org
