About the researcher:  

I am a second year PhD student in Indigenous Studies at Trent University. I completed a Bachelor of Arts, in Interdisciplinary Studies focusing on Anthropology and Conversation Biology at the University of British Columbia where I developed a keen interest in Indigenous knowledge and environmental issues. I subsequently, completed my Master’s in Environmental Studies at York University, entitled “Stories that Create: Foundation Posts Constructing a Frame for Cross-Cultural Knowledge Engagement” which focused on Indigenous knowledge principles.

My present research is examining the collaborative relationships in addressing environmental issues in the Canadian Territorial North. In particular, as it relates to establishing partnerships and mechanisms to address climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies in the Yukon Territory.
