Alec Robitaille

Undergraduate Research Assistant

After graduating from CEGEP Vanier’s Environmental and Wildlife Management program, I worked at McGill University studying red squirrels in Kluane, YT and monitoring changing muskrat lake habitat in the Old Crow Flats, YT using LANDSAT imagery with Google Earth Engine. Since starting my undergrad at Memorial University, I have been involved in the WEEL; assisting in geospatial, movement and social network analyses. Recently, I developed the R package spatsoc (with Quinn and Eric) for detecting spatial and temporal groups in animal telemetry data to build social networks.
