Professor, UVic Eng & Geog / Canada Research Chair in Rural & Indigenous Water Monitoring Professor
As an Assistant Professor in Civil Engineering and Geography at UVic, I specialize in water sustainability, and study built and natural processes for improving water quality. I am interested in how communities can use the nature around them to improve their water security, relying on as little technology as possible – in a sense, community-led permaculture for water.
I enjoy working with Living Labs youth on understanding science and sustainability, especially in lakes, rivers, wetlands, and coastlines. I certainly don’t have all the answers, but I sure am excited when I witness first-hand the power and imagination of youth driving the world away from ecological plundering and towards ecological healing.
