Shaun Turner

 

Shaun Turner is a Ph.D. student in McGill’s Department of Natural Resource Sciences. Under the supervision of professors Chris Buddle and Gregor Fussmann, he studies spiders and insects to learn about how predators and prey interact. Shaun believes that the lessons ecologists are learning about the importance of diversity in nature can teach us something about the importance of diversity in the academic world. He shares with STEMM Diversity @ McGill his thoughts and his journey through academia as a trans man.
