Mark your calendars!
We’re letting you know about a great event run by our department to facilitate community, collaboration and learning over lunch. The Brown Bag Speaker Series is a weekly opportunity to meet faculty and professionals in your field and to broaden your geographical knowledge.
We are pleased to annuonce that Dr. Robin Roith has agreed to take on the role of Chair in the department of Geography, Environment & Geomatics for the period of July 1, 2023 to June 30, 2028. We also give thanks to Dr. Wanhong Yang for his outstanding dedication and service to the department over the last five years.
GEG's Dr. Wanhong Yang and research partners in Alberta worked on a watershed modelling of natural infrastructure project that won an award from the Canadian Federation of Municipalities for natural asset management. Wanhong and project manager Krista Quesnel was interviewed by CBC journalist Emily Chung.
“Yang said he is now working with other governments and watershed and conservation groups in Alberta and Ontario to do similar modelling to figure out what kinds of natural infrastructure projects would be most effective in conserving water or improving water quality.”
Congratulations to Kate Parizeau as an inaugural recipient of the University Teaching Leadership Fellow award in Alternative Assessments and Student Mental Health. As a part of this fellowship, Kate will be completing a substantive project, build and cultivate networking channels in CSAHS, and engage in her own professional development as an educational leader.

The following news about graduate student Amy (Zhaoshu) Shi’s MSc research with the department. It’s good news for our research and its impact, but actually fairly bad news for the province and our forest ecosystems.
