I am Distinguished Professor and UNESCO Chair in Biocultural Diversity, Sustainability, Reconciliation and Renewal at the University of Saskatchewan, Canada. My research, academic service and teaching focus on the social dimensions of sustainability, gender relations and diversity, collaborative environmental governance, and community engagement. I have conducted research about and with UNESCO Biosphere Reserves (called Regions in Canada) since the early 2000s, working with individual sites and with the national network to support capacity building in conservation, sustainable development, and reconciliation. I also work with rural and Indigenous communities to understand and plan for climate hazards. Presently, I'm leading an international partnership to train graduate students working in transdisciplinary sustainability science professional, relational and intercultural skills and competencies necessary to become sustainability change makers.
