A little bit more
I am a Liu Scholar, SESYNC Graduate Research Fellow, and Governor General Gold Medalist at The University of British Columbia's Institute for Resources, Environment, and Sustainability and their Program on Water Governance. I specialize in water security and governance at the rural-urban divide, with a keen focus on developing evidence-based policy recommendations to protect vulnerable peoples facing socio-hydrological change in global South regions.
I am actively involved in water policy planning in British Columbia and across Canada. I hold an 18-month appointment as the President of the Canadian Water Network’s Student and Young Professional Committee. I was selected as one of about 50 applicants from across Canada to participate in the Waterlution Transformative Leaders of the Future Program. Here, I co-facilitated the first Canada-wide exercise in participatory water policy planning – WaterCity 2040 – with the aim to inject the public’s creative visions into future provincial policy.
