I specialize in development and policy related issues in biodiversity science and environmental management. I have a keen interest in partnership development and collaboration in research between academic and non academic stakeholders. I am particularly interested in the role of the (non-expert) public in the advancement of our understanding of natural systems and in environmental management. I have previous work experience in planning throughout the province of Quebec in the private and municipal sectors and have a strong understanding of municipal and regional politics and their relation to environmental decision-making.
I hold a bachelors degree in Environmental Biology from McGill University and a Masters of Science (Planning) from the University of Guelph. I am currently in the final year of my PhD degree at McGill University where I am undertaking an interdisciplinary project.
I am available to work with QCBS researchers and associated members on activities such as:
- facilitating the planning and implementation of collaborative research.
- research on axis 3 themes, e.g. biodiversity planning and adaptive management, biodiversity and decision making, governance.
- projects related to climate change, air and water quality and overall sustainability in urban and peri-urban contexts.
- using qualitative research methods in Biodiversity science.
- integrating traditional knowledge into scientific studies.
- building participatory research projects in Biodiversity science.
- Arctic Science
