I am a masters student in the Department of Community Sustainability. My research interests center around science communications and how the media covers energy projects, and more specifically hydroelectric dams. I am working on the CONVERGENCE project under my advisor Maria Claudia Lopez.
I got my undergraduate degree at the University of British Columbia in Cognitive Systems with a focus on Linguistics. During that time I also worked with a non-profit sustainable food co-op and ran a kitchen on campus. After graduating I worked for a small marketing firm in Vancouver doing social media management, and video and podcast production.
