MA with Daniel Steel, Scientific Evaluator at the Public Health Agency of Canada’s Public Health Risk Sciences Division
Charly is an MA student at the Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability (IRES) and is supervised by Dr. Daniel Steel. Her research interests are broadly centred on the role of values in policy-relevant debates surrounding sustainable agriculture, especially those regarding meat consumption and animal agriculture.
Prior to beginning her studies at IRES, she worked as a Scientific Evaluator at the Public Health Agency of Canada’s Public Health Risk Sciences Division for two years. There, she was part of a knowledge synthesis and mathematical modelling research team focused on addressing antimicrobial resistance in animal agri-food systems. She holds an undergraduate degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Waterloo and has previously worked in research groups at The Hospital for Sick Children (Toronto, ON) in various areas of computational biology.
In her free time, Charly plays violin and piano and loves discovering, dissecting, and discussing new music. She is passionate about knowledge translation and community-engaged research as components of climate activism. In her research, work, activism, and daily life, she takes responsibility for ongoing self-education and action regarding decolonization and equity.
