Veronika Franzova

M.Sc. student

Veronika at a lake in Jasper Park, Alberta.

Veronika completed her undergraduate degree at UBC with a specialization in Marine Biology. After performing an experiment on trematode parasites that infect marine snails as an undergrad, Veronika fell in love with symbionts and parasites of all kinds. Now, she has joined the Proctor lab at the U of A to again study snail symbionts, but in a freshwater context. When Veronika is not geeking out over snails and parasites she is busy reading or doing pottery.
