Biography

I study lived experiences of climate change in high mountain regions, with a focus on vulnerability and adaptation to changes in glacial hydrology. I have led community-level projects in the Nepal Himalaya, Peruvian Andes, Rocky Mountains, Greenland, and Baffin Island as well as numerous global-scale evaluations of climate change vulnerability and adaptation in cold regions. I am active in publishing and presenting my scholarly contributions and am committed to the mobilization of scientific knowledge, including through my work as a Contributing Author with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). I am currently the Project Leader for the Canadian Mountain Assessment, as well as a Banting Postdoctoral Fellow affiliated with the University of Zurich. I hold degrees from the University of British Columbia (PhD), the University of Oxford (MSc), and McGill University (BA Hons).
