Overview

About

As Polar Science and Policy Engagement Officer, I focus on interdisciplinary research, science policy, outreach and community engagement, and teaching, and identify potential collaborative opportunities across the natural and social sciences. I contribute to programs and units of excellence such as the Canadian Ice Core Lab (CICL), as well as other departmental areas of expertise such as climate change.

I studied History at Delhi University and International Relations at Jawaharlal Nehru University (New Delhi, India), and I hold a PhD in Polar Ecology and Management from the Scott Polar Research Institute, University of Cambridge. My involvement in Arctic and Antarctic research spans nearly three decades - in the role of a researcher but in the most part in service to supporting and promoting northern and circumpolar research and education.


Research

My research interests are:

·      Science-politics interface in the development and organization of polar science programs.

·      History and contemporary nature of national Antarctic programs.

·      Canada's geopolitical interests in the Arctic and Canada's strategy for polar science.

·      Geopolitics, security and sovereignty in the circumpolar North.
