About Me

I am a GIS specialist at Northern Climate ExChange (NCE - part of Yukon Research Centre) with a background in geography and a Master's degree in Environmental planning from Laval University, Quebec. I currently have 10 years of experience in mapping and spatial analyses. I started by mapping surficial deposits by photo interpretation as a student, producing several maps for communities in Nunavik (Quebec). Then, I started my professional career in Edmonton as a consultant working mainly with Indigenous communities on land claims, traditional land use studies, and various environmental projects. My work with the community of Jean Marie River (NWT) lead me to work on climate change and more specifically permafrost mapping. I moved to Whitehorse in 2014 and have been working for NCE since then where I handle database management, map production, and spatial analyses. I also have the chance to teach mapping and GIS at the Yukon College school of science, which gives me the possibility to interact with students and share my knowledge.
