About My Work
For the last year I have worked with the Lancet-University of Oslo Commission on Global Governance for Health, where I worked primarily on the imact TNCs have on enviornmental and human health issues. I recently completed my Masters of Philosophy in Culture, Environment and Sustainability at the University of Oslo, Norway, with a focus on extractive industries and their effects on communities and the environment. I conducted extensive fieldwork in Peru and Western Canada, looking at the issues of consent and consultation with indigenous peoples with regard to subsoil resources projects. Originally from Canada, I have worked for many years with NGOs involved in environmental and HR advocacy(particularly related to the Tar Sands), as well as in the field at a diamond exploration camp in the arctic, as an industrial medic in the oil patch, and with the National Parks Service in the Rockies. In 2008-9, I coordinated a CIDA/One Sky/Conservation Society of Sierra Leone project (with additional funds from the IUCN and DDI) to reclaim diamond mined-out areas in the Kono region of Sierra Leone with organic farming cooperatives. We also made a short film of the project, "Life After Diamonds" http://vimeo.com/4698383 which has since screened in classrooms and in festivals around the world.
