Congratulations to Alex on her PhD defence
A big congratulations to Dr Alex Lesnikwoski who successful defended her PhD last week in the dept. of geography at McGill University. Alex’s thesis is titled “Climate change adaptation policy formulation among local governments: A policy instruments approach.” Alex first started working with @ccadapt in 2010, pioneering first generation approaches to adaptation tracking. She then went to UBC to do a masters degree in planning before returning to @ccadapt to lead the SSHRC funded adaptation tracking collaborative, beginning her PhD in 2015. Alex will start a postdoc in September with Dr Dan Scott at the University of Waterloo through a SSHRC funded postdoctoral scholarship.
