Vinko Culjak Mathieu
Graduate student at McGill University
Vinko is an MSc candidate in Entomology at McGill University where he studies the temporal dynamics of plant-pollinator networks in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. He is particularly interested in describing how these networks change across a flowering season, how robust they are to disturbances, and how they respond to the ever-intensifying effects of climate change. Vinko completed an Honours BSc in Biology at the University of Ottawa in 2016. For his honour’s project, he studied the pollination ecology and reproductive biology of the Nevada sweat pea. He currently works under the supervision of Dr Christopher Buddle (https://arthropodecology.com/) and at the Lyman Entomological Museum (https://lymanmuseum.wordpress.com/about/). Vinko is active in many science communication and outreach initiatives such as Skype-a-Scientist and the McGill Apicultural Association. He also uses his Instagram account (http://instagram.com/vinko.culjak) to highlight the diversity of insects and plants.
