Welcome to the laboratory of 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.

We do fieldwork in the traditional territories of the Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw and ‘Namgis First Nations on the south Central Coast of BC based from the Salmon Coast Field Station, located amongst the islands above. Learn more about our research, programs, and community.
