Postdoctoral fellow, Université Laval
Dr. Marianne Falardeau holds a Ph.D. in Natural Resource Sciences from McGill University (supervisor: Prof. Elena Bennett), as well as a B.Sc. and an M.Sc. in Biology from Université Laval. She is a postdoctoral fellow at Université Laval with a joint affiliation in health and biology, where she conducts her research as part of major Arctic projects supported by the Belmont Forum and Genome Canada. She studies marine ecosystems in the context of a changing Arctic, and the importance of marine resources for Indigenous and coastal communities, especially Arctic Char fisheries. Her research further aims to guide sustainable management of Arctic marine ecosystems and resources. Marianne's approach is transdisciplinary in that she aims to bridge different types of knowledge and academic disciplines. Marianne is also an eager science communicator who shares her research through articles, conferences, short films, interactive workshops, and new media. She was named amongst the Top 30 leaders in sustainability under 30 years old of Canada by the Magazine Corporate Knights, and as a Clean50 Emerging Leader, in recognition of her research and science outreach efforts.
