Brady recently completed the Master of Arts in Environmental Policy program at Grenfell Campus, working in collaboration with the community of Ewipkek (Flat Bay). Currently, Brady is a first year PhD in Rural Studies student at the University of Guelph. His research interests intersect between environmental stewardship, community development, and the inclusion of Indigenous knowledge in decision-making processes. As a settler scholar with mixed English/Mi’kmaw ancestry, Brady explores the roles and responsibilities of researchers engaging in community-based participatory research including self-reflection and critical thinking throughout the research process.

During my Master’s studies, I was also able to participate in a unique summer program called Students on Ice, in which I traveled to Northern Labrador with a group of Indigenous and non-Indigenous students to learn about climate change adaptation, ocean literacy, sustainable development goals and truth and reconciliation.
