Research Interests:
My research focuses on forestry and co-management resource agreements. My research will follow a relationship-based approach to understanding forestry governance and related capacity needs, working collaboratively with Eagle Lake First Nation to develop long-term solutions that account for the rights of, and also meet the long-term objectives and goals of forestry professionals and Eagle Lake First Nation. This project may serve as a model for future natural resource based projects to develop equitable resource management models.


Since graduating with a Bachelor of Environmental Studies in 2020, I have had a keen interest in continuing my studies around environmental governance and resource management. I am now pursuing my Masters in Environment in the MESC program under the supervision of Dr Ryan Bullock. I am looking forward to being a part of the small and supportive research environment that the University of Winnipeg offers its students.
