About Evan Mayer

Evan completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Guelph studying microbiology and his Master’s thesis at the University of Toronto studying plant-beneficial microbes. Evan’s research interests in agriculture and climate change were sparked through a volunteer trip to the Amazon in 2016 and from working with plants during his Master’s, and he hopes to use the knowledge and experience gained from the CREATE-CSS program to make a positive contribution to combat climate change. In his free time, Evan enjoys watching and playing sports (especially hockey!), cooking, exploring nature, and playing board games.
