Sara holds an MA and PhD in Geography from the University of Minnesota. Prior to joining the CCJ, she was a Killam Postdoctoral Fellow in UBC Geography, a Simons Postdoctoral Fellow in the UBC School of Public Policy and Global Affairs, and a Fellow with the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services. Her past research has focused on the social histories and political economy of ecosystem management; justice claims in industrial and energy transitions; and the labour politics of environmental stewardship. As Research Manager for the CCJ, Sara works with CCJ leadership, faculty, and students to manage and support the Centre’s ongoing research, build new research partnerships, and develop and implement research protocols. When not at the CCJ, she can usually be found sewing, knitting, or foraging with her son for wild foods and plant dyes.
