It is a custom that we academics call the assemblage of people we work with a ‘lab’, though I think it conjures the wrong picture in my case. I work with a wonderful group of junior scholars, and I am proud of what we have done together, and their journeys beyond my lab.

I am generally happy to hear from those interested in working with me. I do not have any graduate  student spots  for 2022, however. This may change as funding announcements occur

Currently, I am working with (supervising or co-supervising) the following people, at Dalhousie unless otherwise mentioned:

  • Gillian Kerr, Research Associate (p/t), ResNet, 2021-
  • Qiqi Zhao, PhD, visiting student on the ResNet project funded by the China Scholarship Council, 2021-2022
  • Keahna Margeson, IDPhD , OGEN fellowship (co-supervised with Patricia Manuel, Planning) 2021-
  • Yan Chen, IDPhD, Image auto-coding tools for social impact assessment: Leveraging social media data to understand social and cultural hydro-landscape changes in Canada (co-supervised with Mike Smit, Dal School of Information Management), 2018-
  • Kate Thompson, IDPhD, Operationalizing ES in Urban Planning (co-supervised with Peter Duinker, SRES), 2016-
  • Samantha Howard, MES, Climax thinking, coastal adaptation and flood mapping  in the Maritimes and Gaspe, 2021-
