Robin is an Environmental Policy student who began at Memorial University in 2019. She holds an undergraduate degree from the University of Ottawa: an Honors BSSc with a specialization in Conflict Studies and Human Rights. Previously, Robin worked with the International Assistance Policy Coordination team at Global Affairs Canada on international integration of the Agenda 2030 (the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals). She left her position there to gain environmental expertise, and better position herself to help Canada work towards the SDGs.
Supervised by Dr. Paul Foley, Robin is working on a project that will contextualize Newfoundland’s fisheries’ sustainability policy in the global arena, with the end goal of identifying policies that may help to discourage greenhouse gas emissions from the fisheries industry.
