Background

Charlotte recently graduated with her BA Honours in Anthropology and Geography from McMaster University and has been accepted into a Master’s in public health at the University of Toronto. During her undergraduate, Charlotte undertook an independent study supervised by Dr. Ljubicic titled Exploring how the Social Determinants of Inuit Health are addressed through Community-led Programming in Nunavut. Her interest in food security challenges in Nunavut continued to grow through that research, and now she is back for summer 2021 having secured a McMaster Undergraduate Student Research Award. Her summer research will involve conducting an analysis of legislation that would regulate or restrict a proposed community harvest of the overabundant light goose population around Arviat, Nunavut. Her work is guided by Ljubicic, Carter, and the Aqqiumavvik Society. In her spare time, Charlotte enjoys cooking and baking, cross-stitching, and taking care of her plants.
