IOI-Canada occasionally has visiting researchers who are working on
marine or coastal issues. From late July to mid August 2018, we
were pleased to host Yu Qian as a
Visiting Research Associate.
Ms Yu is the Maritime Program Manager for
the National Institute for South China Sea Studies in Haikou, Hainan,
China. She also works for them as a Junior Research Associate.
Prior to this, Bertrum MacDonald was with us
between September 2016 and August 2017, during his
year-long research leave following his term as Dean of the Faculty of
Management at Dalhousie University. Dr MacDonald is research lead for
the Environmental Information: Use
and Influence (EIUI) research programme which helps advance
understanding of the many
pathways of information
(scientific, social science, and local) at the science-policy interface
in marine environmental contexts.
