Dr. Marty Leonard has played many roles at Dalhousie - biology professor, graduate supervisor, and now, Faculty Dean. The new position will allow Dr. Leonard to advise Dal graduate students from all faculties, a role she is looking forward to.

“In my lab we do a mix of basic and applied conservation biology,” she explains.  “Most of my students are doing projects with a focus on birds, but not exclusively,” she says. “I’ve had students that have worked on seals and bats, for example.”
