The Rogers Lab engages in highly collaborative, inter-disciplinary research in the biological sciences. We use a combination of discovery-based, applied and experimental development approaches to learn about natural history, ecology, evolution and conservation with an ultimate goal of contributing knowledge towards planetary wellbeing. To achieve this goal, we are committed to accepting multiple ways of knowing and acknowledge the peoples on whose traditional territories where our work takes us. We are also committed to learn about the historically oppressed and marginalized Indigenous communities where we live and study and to offer our support to those Nations guided by the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation reports and the UNDRIP.

We openly welcome all students and researchers and are dedicated to providing a safe, inclusive working environment regardless of background [gender, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, abilities, religion, nationality, immigration status, parenthood status, age or socio-economic background]. We believe science is best served and driven forward by drawing on the range of insights that can only be generated by diverse backgrounds and individual experiences. We promote wellness and look out for one another, including guidance and support when help is needed. We acknowledge that there are barriers in science, field work and postsecondary institutions for equity deserving groups, and through our education and actions we are dedicated to fostering transformational change within the research ecosystem at Canadian post-secondary institutions, including taking a stand against racism and all other forms of discrimination.  Together, we can build a future research and learning community where all can thrive.
