ArcticNet - About us

University of British Columbia

My early interest in research led me to work on many different projects in plant ecology: control and competition experiments on invasive weeds in southern Quebec; interaction between black spruce roots in the boreal forest; and impacts of climate change on black spruce colonization at the tree line. I completed a M.Sc. degree on the effects of climate change on shrub cover using vegetation survey and dendrochronology. I conducted my fieldwork throughout the Eastern Arctic from Resolute Bay, Alexandra Fjord, Sverdrup Pass and Ward hunt Island in Canada to Zackenberg in Greenland. My current research (PhD) focuses on berries, their availability and use by humans and animals. Data are collected in partnership with High school science class throughout Nunavut and Nunavik.
