I am a social scientist with a primary focus on the human dimensions of environmental change. I am particularly interested in Indigenous experiences of environmental change in the Canadian and circumpolar Arctic, especially around the impacts of change on traditional land-based livelihoods and food security (particularly country-food sharing networks). I have experience working as a research technician, field researcher and project leader on projects in the traditional territories of the Haida Nation, the Gitxaala Nation, the Ktunaxa/Kinbasket, the Shuswap and across the Inuit Nunangat.

Non-Academic Interests:

I am an endurance athlete active in the Canadian Pacific Northwest and abroad, practising climbing, trail running, bikepacking and ski-mountaineering. I write about some of these activities at, a blog I co-author with Skyler Des Roches. In my capacity as an endurance athlete I am the grateful recipient of support from a number of Vancouver-area companies including Westcomb, Mighty Riders and Red Dots Cycling.
