Festival coordinator, 2019-20
From skiing my hometown mountains in Canada, to trekking through the Icelandic highlands, I have always felt most at home on snow! I recently completed my MSc International Business, for which I wrote my dissertation on the implications of increased maritime traffic on the Arctic blue economy. This topic led me to discover the realm of Arctic geopolitics, and I am now excited to be applying to continue my research at the PhD level! I am grateful to have discovered a passion for polar research, and I hope that my enthusiasm for the scientific and social elements of the polar regions will ignite a similar passion in others as I co-serve as Festival Coordinator on the UKPN committee.
