I carried those experiences forward into my current research focus, which involves working with Canadian and Greenlandic communities in the High Arctic around the North Water Polynya, or Pikialasorsuaq. Our aim in this project is to collaborate with communities to develop training for Inuit-led monitoring of the region that lines up with both community interests and CEOS’s scientific capacity. Partially employed by the non-governmental organization Oceans North, my role is also to act as a liaison across sectors. It is hoped that this collaborative initiative will help build capacity and self-determination among Inuit in the region.
