Victoria Crozier – Ph.D.

About Victoria

Victoria completed her B.Sc. in biology at McGill University in 2019, specializing in evolutionary biology, with a minor in natural history. She completed her M.Sc. at the University of Sherbrooke in 2022 where she studied the effects of climate change-induced phenological mismatch on bighorn sheep reproductive tactics. She joined the McLoughlin lab in January 2023 and is currently working on her Ph.D. studying the relationships between habitat and fitness in the Sable Island feral horses, and how that has changed with the increase of the local grey seal population. Her main research interests lie in how mammals respond to various anthropogenic disturbances such as climate change, habitat loss, and invasive species. In her free time Victoria enjoys horseback riding, hiking with her dog, and doing nail art.
