Currently researching in Socio-hydrology. I am trying to address what are termed as “wicked problems” – the management of human-environment systems, in this case involving water resources. I am affiliated in a project that is termed “Exploring water resource management in partnership with the community of water users of Lake Diefenbaker”. My ultimate goal is to produce a thesis which will look at eutrophication from the perspective of risk communication/management as well as incorporation of partnership building among communities and some of the researchers working on L. Diefenbaker as part of the Global Institute for Water Security at University of Saskatchewan
