I am a marine biologist and during my graduate studies I worked with seabirds (ecology and toxicology). I have experience with prey-predator interactions, stable isotope analysis and metal contaminants.
I am currently working as a project coordinator for multiple projects (MPRI, GENICE, ArcticNet, NCP) studying contaminants such as hydrocarbons and mercury in the low Arctic. My duties include: compile and perform technical edition of scientific reports; assist in field work and field work preparation; facilitate communication between partners and collaborators; update and manage metadata record in the Polar Data Catalogue; meet and consult with northern stakeholders.
