On December 8th, 2021, three members of the ESRC presented at the Faculty of Social Sciences Annual Research Colloquium. Second-year SSAS student Jillian Booth was one of three students chosen to present their research, and discussed her MRP research about a holistic approach to low impact development. After the student presentations concluded, ESRC Faculty Members Drs. Julia Baird and Jessica Blythe presented their research as the co-recipients of the FOSS Early Career Researcher of the Year award. Dr. Baird’s presentation consisted of a discussion about water resilience in a changing world, and an overview of activities going on in the Water Resilience Lab. Dr. Blythe discussed her research on Fostering Ocean Empathy, as well as her work on the Niagara Adapts partnership.
We are incredibly proud to have been so well represented at this event and to have such a wide variety of research happening in our centre – learn more about each presentation in the photos below!
