I am a research scientist specializing in conservation, land use planning, renewable energy, urban systems and climate change. I have 15+ years of experience in leadership, government liaison, environmental assessment, partnership building, and the use of GIS and computer modelling to solve sustainability issues. I spent a decade at the Nature Conservancy of Canada leading ecoregional conservation assessment projects. Since then I have started an environmental consulting company and am involved in Indigenous housing and renewable energy projects and working on renewable energy systems modelling and design.
