Hey! My name is Ally Ruttan and I’m a fourth year Bachelor of Science student majoring in biology. I’m thrilled to join Dr. Lortie’s lab and start my honours thesis this coming summer. Right now I’m primarily interested in studying insects, as well as plant invaders and restoration ecology but I’m excited to learn more and possibly explore different areas of study. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time at the cottage, painting, and riding my horse.
