Masters Student Landscape 1 Dalhousie University
Samantha Howard (she/her) is a graduate student at Dalhousie University interested in exploring where people place value with regards to understanding landscapes and landscape related decision making, particularly within the context of nature based coastal climate change adaptations. Her background in research spans across a diversity of fields, beginning in psychology before transitioning to geography as a budding social scientist researcher. Past projects have covered the fields of transportation epidemiology, fish health and habitat mapping, and monitoring prescribed burn regrowth and regeneration. Her current project focuses on exploring underlying reasons for resistance to nature based coastal climate adaptations, specifically dyke realignment and flood risk mapping, within the Bay of Fundy’s Minas Basin region within Landscape 1.
