Where Are They Now?

Erin Cameron is another undergraduate, recognized by the ACTWS with an Ian Ross Memorial Scholarship (2004) who has gone on to a fascinating career.

Perhaps inspired by fellow Ross recipient, Phil McLoughlin who was later her instructor, Erin has gone on to an international career studying below-ground biodiversity. She’s even followed Phil’s footsteps to begin a study on Sable Island.

After completing her PhD, she went on to study throughout Europe, North and South America. Her studies on earthworms have landed her an Assistant Professorship at Saint Mary’s University in Halifax. Oh the places you’ll go [to quote another Doctor (Seuss)].

Embark on a journey of precision and insight with the Lethbridge College Wildlife Analytics Lab (WAL) at the ACTWS Conference in Jasper! Join our workshop, ‘Rooted in Wisdom: Deer Aging Techniques‘, to explore the secrets hidden within wildlife teeth. Explore both the field technique of ‘tooth eruption and wear’ and the laboratory marvel of ‘cementum analysis’ – both dedicated to unraveling the mysteries of ungulate ages. Delve into the heart of these techniques, comparing their accuracy and precision, with a revelation of the superior accuracy of cementum analysis. Learn the art of tooth extraction and witness the seamless process of submitting your own wildlife teeth to the WAL for aging through cementum analysis. Elevate your understanding of deer populations and contribute to the advancement of wildlife knowledge and bolster your resume with applied experience. Participants will gain hands-on familiarity with the field technique of jaw aging, and the lab process of tooth extraction, inspection, preparation, and cementum analysis. Join us in Jasper for a transformative experience at the intersection of field expertise and cutting-edge laboratory analysis!
