Dr. Bianca Romagnoli joins our team as the Facilitator of Research Development. She recently completed her PhD in Anthropology at UCLA, where her research focused on the relationship between the Canadian military and Arctic and Sub-Arctic communities, particularly through the lens of the Canadian Rangers in Nunavut, NWT, and the Yukon. Her work delved into the dynamics of Indigeneity in Canada's arctic sovereignty mission. Bianca also holds a MA in Religion from the University of Toronto, studying the intersection of religion and military support for soldiers post-combat, and a BA in Political Science and Religious Studies from the University of Ottawa. Her practical experience includes roles as a youth navigator with the Foster Family Coalition of the NWT and in grant writing and research for HomeBase YK. In her new role at Aurora College, Bianca will support the transition of staff and faculty to a research-focused approach as the institution evolves into a polytechnic. Her responsibilities include one-on-one consultations, workshops, and developing online resources to assist with research ethics, methodologies, and funding strategies. Bianca is dedicated to enhancing research understanding and practices, particularly within the unique context of the North.
