PhD in Classical Archaeology, University of Alberta


My role at ARI is to promote the Aurora Research Institute (ARI) through communications and research administration. Using my skills in the Humanities, I help craft narratives that increase public awareness of how the work at ARI directly impacts the lives of NWT residents. In this position, I have two main responsibilities. The first is to provide research administration support and work with the researchers to develop research proposals that are in accordance with institutional and agency requirements. The second is to develop and implement communications that align with ARI's strategic policy.
