Degree: Master of Environment
Thesis: Climate Change Adaptation in Newfoundland’s Renewable Bio-Resource Sector: An investigation of Social Learning and Policy
Supervisor: Dr. Alan Diduck
Entry: Fall 2021

Research Interests:
My research will examine linkages between social learning and adaptive capacity and how these concepts may translate to climate change adaptation in Canada’s renewable resource sector. The research will provide information and tools to guide adaptation strategies in correspondence to Canada’s international commitments under the Paris Agreement and federal objectives in pursuit of a clean growth economy.

I graduated from the University of Winnipeg with a BSc in Environmental Science (Hons) in the forest policy and management stream and a 3-year minor in biology. Through my education, I have gained an interdisciplinary and integrated knowledge of the intrinsically linked natural and human environment. This has brought about a personal desire to stand up for social justice, and engage in sustainability issues.  I chose the MESC program because it zeros in on integrated training that environmental industries truly need to make positive change. Through this program, I anticipate comprehensive development of my ability to work through an interdisciplinary and collaborative lens, as well as enhance a broad range of research and critical thinking skills made available through the program.
