I am a CIHR Chair in the Dept. of Geography at McGill, and lead the Climate Change Adaptation Research Group. My work takes place at the interface between climate and society, and I am particularly interested in climate change vulnerability and adaptation. I lead a diversity of initiatives in this area, including projects focusing on Indigenous peoples and climate change (with a major focus on the Arctic), and examining ways to create ‘usable’ science. Resource management, natural hazards, and health, are overarching topics within these themes. Along with my colleagues, I am also developing novel approaches to tracking climate change adaptation at global and regional levels, developing systematic review approaches in an environmental change context, and I am involved in adaptation monitoring and evaluation debates. I am currently editor-in-chief at the journal Regional Environmental Change, have been a lead author on national and international climate assessments including the IPCCs SR on 1.5C of warming, and have published >150 peer reviewed articles.
