Biography

I (she/her) am a graduate of Carleton University (MSc, BHSc), where I studied methane fluxes from an Arctic wet sedge meadow using eddy covariance and closed chamber techniques. I am interested in the exchange of greenhouse gases fluxes between plants, soil, water and the atmosphere, and the many evolving processes that drive these fluxes.

In the AtmosBios lab, I am working on the Future Skills Centre project “Climate Change monitoring in NWT” led by Dr. Oliver Sonnentag (Université de Montréal). This project aims to start community-based monitoring of micrometeorological towers across NWT, during a time where travel and the ability to service these towers has been challenging. I intend to use my academic and professional background and personal experiences to collaborate, engage and connect with the community members interested in this program.
