I joined the Future Earth Open Network as the coordinator of the Coastal Risk Reduction and Recovery Finance Community of Practice for the Marine Environmental Observation Prediction and Response (MEOPAR) Network. Along with my responsibilities with the MEOPAR Network, I serve as the Manager, Partnership Development for the Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction, a multi-disciplinary disaster prevention research institute affiliated with Western University. I completed a Master of Science at Tulane University in Disaster Resilience Leadership Studies, and also hold a Master of Architecture degree from Laval University. My work in recent years has been focused on climate adaptation, more specifically on adaptation to extreme weather events at the municipal and building level.
