Chanda Brietzke is a Climate Analyst for the PICS Climate News Scan, writing on the topic of resilient ecosystems. Chanda recently completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Victoria in Anthropology and Environmental Studies. These programs gave her an appreciation for broad, interdisciplinary approaches to ecosystems and the roles humans play within them.
She plans to shift her future studies to a more scientific focus without losing sight of the importance of human interactions and traditional knowledge, and may pursue a graduate degree in the near future. One of her primary interests is the ways in which ethnoecological research can contribute to community and ecosystem well-being, especially in the face of climate change.
