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
