Welcome to the laboratory of Prof Martin Krkosek, Canada Research Chair in Marine Epidemiology. We are based in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Toronto. Our research is in population ecology and its applications to epidemiology, fisheries, and conservation. We work on marine fishes, marine mammals, aquatic parasites, mathematical models, and statistical analysis.

The MK Lab conducts fieldwork in the territories of the Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw, Mamalilikulla and ‘Namgis First Nations on the south Central Coast of BC in partnership with the Salmon Coast Field Station, located amongst the islands above. Learn more about SCFS research, programs, and community.
