Cameron So

PhD Candidate in Biology
Department of Biology, McGill University



I am a PhD student in the Conservation, Ecology, Evolution, and Behaviour group at McGill University, jointly supervised by Drs. Anna Hargreaves and Daniel Schoen. I recently completed a M.Sc with Dr. Arthur Weis at the University of Toronto studying the capacity of a field mustard (Brassica rapa) to adapt to climate change. At McGill, I'm studying conservation genetics (i.e local adaptation, genotype-environment-associations, assisted gene flow, plasticity) in the beautiful but potentially at-risk plant Lupinus perennis. My work crosses borders between the US and Canada, and engages with multiple conservation groups. Broadly, I'm interested in biodiversity conservation, climate change, and genetics/genomics.

If I'm not in the lab, I'm likely finding a new recipe to try, throwing a frisbee, playing videogames, doing fieldwork, gardening, or finding new trails to hike. Don't hesitate to email me or follow me on social media.
