Matt Regan (he/him)

Principal investigator

Matt is an integrative biologist who investigates how animals balance their energy economies to sustain life. He spends a surprising amount of time rolling over logs in search of animals and scanning the night sky for celestial objects. As lab PI, he's got his hands in all projects in some way or other. BScH Queen's University, MSc and PhD University of British Columbia, Postdoc University of Wisconsin-Madison.


Descriptors: student, musician, father, modernist, multi-enthusiast.

Rémi Chauvette

MSc student/researcher

Rémi is a student working on the impact of experimental parasite infection on an endemic Quebec species, the sunfish pumpkinseed. His research is focused on the impact of the infection on metabolism and hypoxia tolerance over the course of two months. Rémi's experiments were done at the biology station of the Laurentides during summer 2022. He is now in the second year of his master's degree, busy working for students as the president of the student union and at the same time working on his data and memoire.

Descriptors: energetic, joyous, empathic, involved, dedicated


Alexandre Goudreau

Honours student/researcher

Passionate about aquatic life, Alexandre is a student working to better understand the underlying processes and mechanisms of hypoxic metabolic depression. To do so, he conducts experiments on the champion of hypoxia tolerance, namely the goldfish (Carassius auratus), by using calorespirometry to measure its metabolism under anoxia. He is in his final semester of the baccalaureat degree and conducts his experiment in the context of the Honors program.

Descriptors: passionate, curious, caring, meticulous, enthusiastic, devoted
