ARCTIC

Working with researchers in Nunavut communities, at the University of Alberta, and elsewhere, my writing has focused on understanding the accelerating changes across the arctic landscape and on helping Nunavummiut take the reins of northern research.
VIDEO SCRIPT FOR INUIT-WESTERN RESEARCH TRAINING
A team from the University of Alberta and Arviat, Nunavut, developed a series of research training workshops. A short video told the story.

 

Research and writing work helped create the proposal, a published manuscript and a script for a short video documenting the research training workshop series in two Arctic communities. 

CO-DEVELOPED INUIT-WESTERN APPROACHES TO RESEARCH
A novel approach to marrying Inuit and Western qualitative science could offer a path to a new consensus-based research method

 

I helped design and attract funding for a co-developed Inuit-Western research project to consolidate approaches to Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit and Western qualitative research methods. .

BIODIVERSITY STEWARDSHIP IN A CLIMATE CHANGED ARCTIC
The World Wildlife Fund had a novel idea for identifying conservation targets throughout the Arctic. An influential report was the result.

 

A two-year WWF project, involving four scientific teams on two continents, explored how ecosystem resilience might offer conservation hope to the world's fast-changing Arctic regions. Research and writing work helped with the report that has since been cited by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and the Arctic Council.

WRITING SUPPORT FOR LEADING CLIMATE RESEARCH
The Canadian Foundation of Climate and Atmospheric Sciences funded university-based climate research for more than a decade.

 

During its ten-year mandate, CFCAS funded two dozen multi-year, multi-million-dollar research networks and 160 large scientific projects across the country. We worked with the organization for several years writing reports, briefs and other materials to get the message out. We also wrote the book celebrating its legacy.

OUTREACH AND RECRUITING FOR CLIMATE SCIENCE SUPPORT
Canada's premier climate science funding agency needed help transforming itself into a new national science-to-policy forum.

 

The Canadian Climate Forum (CCF) is a national organization that promotes climate science in decision making.  By spearheading outreach and recruiting governments, industry associations and environmental groups, we helped this new national forum rebuild itself.
