I am a SSHRC postdoctoral research fellow interested in the changing goals of environmental remediation in northern Canada. In 2013 I completed my PhD at the University of Stirling's Centre for Environment, Heritage, and Policy. Last year I conducted research funded by Resources and Sustainable Development in the Arctic on the remediation of northern mines.
