Just in time for our virtual graduation this week, nice to see that DalNews has featured recent lab alum Farzana Karim, as well as MREM alum Ben Johns.  Farzana’s thesis topic on the challenge that short-term rentals and second homes pose to climate change planning and management has only become more important since she began it. I hope that she and her MES alum husband, Tahazzud Hossein, find a good home in friendly Corner Brook, where my family hails from originally.

Big week in the lab

Exciting week in the Sherren lab. IDPhD student Yan Chen expertly sat her first comp on Monday, covering her literature review on ‘media as social sensors’. Ellen Chappell crossed the stage Tuesday with her MES, and I got to meet her charming (and proud) parents visiting from Calgary for the event. Wednesday I pressed the submit button on my new SSHRC Insight Grant application to further develop ‘climax thinking‘. On Thursday, new MES Gardenio da Silva was honoured with other Killam scholars at the annual awards lunch. Amidst all that PhD student Bernard Soubry has been visiting from Montreal and did a great presentation Tuesday in Graduate Seminar for me on his reciprocal approach to interviewing farmers, and will speak later today in a SRES Talk on his work with the Earth Negotiations Bulletin. Busy times, but this is what it is all about.
