I am an interdisciplinary researcher and thinker focused on systems that improve urban environments’ climate change resiliency. I am currently working as the Executive Director of the Compost Education Centre. Over the past 8 years, I have been engaged in economic, geographic, and public health analyses of SOIL’s household sanitation service for urban Haiti. And a few years ago, I had the opportunity to do my MASc in Civil Engineering with Dr. Dorea and the Public Health & Environmental Engineering (PH2E) group. I live, work, and play on the Lkwungen and WSÁNEĆ territories.
