Research Area: Environmental History, Rivers, Climate Change

Supervisor: Matthew Evenden

Research Statement:

Drawing from environmental history and environmental justice, I study “water as a way of life” through the water transportation of logs on Fraser River.

Using archival analysis, maps, and ethnography, my work examines the impacts of changes in the river channel, sense of place for those who interact with the river, and opportunities for a just and resilient river future.

By bringing together the voices of loggers, fishers, quarry workers, bureaucrats, First Nations, and non-humans, I hope to enhance the public’s sense of place and relationships with the land they call home.
