I recently discovered that I'm definitely not superhuman, and that 8-hours of sleep, a good run, and some non-academic books go a long way. These things aside, here's what I’m up to now:


I'm working on my Ph.D. at a glacial pace (in a rapidly melting environment!). These days you'll find me writing dissertation chapters at the University of Waterloo in Canada. You can read more about my research here.

Expected graduation date: 2019

Want to talk post-doctoral opportunities? I'm all ears.


Last year, Gosia Smieszek and I co-hosted a NordForsk-funded event titled "Women of the Arctic: Bridging Policy, Research, and Lived Experience" at the 2018 UArctic Congress in Helsinki. You can read about the event, here.

The following month, we brought together a panel at the 2018 Arctic Circle in Reykjavik, Iceland, to discuss the potential of an Arctic Women’s Summit. Interested in learning more? Email us.

In January 2019, we took part in one of the plenary sessions and the Pecha Kucha of Arctic Frontiers.

Together with What Took You So Long, we released a series of interviews with eleven women who live in, work on, and engage with the Arctic. These videos are published on Plan A, our digital storytelling platform on women and gender in the Arctic. You can find the first in a series of videos here.
