I am a fourth-year student at UW pursuing a major in Global and Regional Studies and a minor in Arctic Studies. I am interested in learning how to manage power dynamics between state and non-state actors, and in particular, create environments for negotiation where Arctic Indigenous organizations can operate with their full agency, as they cooperate on issues such as adaptation to changing conditions caused by climate change, emergency response in international waters, and sustainable economic development in Arctic communities. I am also passionate about earth science and energy security and plans to study the resource extraction plans of China and other non-Arctic states. I am excited to be a part of this project and am greatly looking forward to learning from Inuit organizations in Ottawa.
