Research Interests:
I am working on the Climate Learning and Adaptation for Northern Development Project (C-LAND).  The purpose of this project is to determine how climate learning can support adaptive capacity within intricate government settings.  This will be done by exploring various case studies involving the natural resource sector within northern communities across Canada.

I graduated with a BSc in Biology from the University of Winnipeg in 2021.  My undergrad had a major focus on both Forest Ecology and Indigenous Studies and I have worked in the urban forestry industry for 5 years. I was drawn to the MESC program by its interdisciplinary nature and I believe bridging natural and social sciences is crucial in understanding the climate issues we face today. The C-LAND project is particularly compelling as northern communities are often adversely affected by climate change and the natural resource industry.
