I'm currently working on my masters degree on the impact of trawling on deep-sea ecosystems of British Columbia using video and sonar data. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQAM), with a specialization in ecology. In February 2009, I was part of the first Antarctic University Expedition with Students on Ice. Then, I got involved in filmmaking as a tool to educate and bring awareness on social or environmental issues. In the Fall 2009, I participated in a marine research expedition on an icebreaker in the Arctic to document marine ecosystems and understand future changes. This experience gave me the opportunity to produce my first marine scientific documentary for Kim Juniper's laboratory and the Canadian Healthy Oceans Network. My polar experiences gave me a unique way of perceiving this world: we have only one planet, it is small and everything is connected.
Following my studies, I would like to pursue my curiosity for explorations and work on projects with coastal communities to help in their adaptations to climate change, facilitate environmental management, and work towards sustainable communities. I strongly believe the solutions will come by combining the important traditional/local knowledge with science. Outreach and education are also very crucial.
