Data Scientist for BC First Nations Climate Action Data Quilt Project
Jordan is an interdisciplinary scientist with a background in health sciences, GIS, physical geography and ecological restoration. He is passionate about the environment and has focussed his career around studying issues at the intersection of the environment and human health. He embraces the understanding that humans are not separate from the environment, but rather that we are a part of it and that as humans impact the health of the environment, the health of the environment in turn impacts the health of humans, and so on. His research centres around climate change, resource development and human health, while being grounded in ecological knowledge and relying heavily on spatial data and statistics. Although much of his work has focussed on the negative aspects of this cycle, he is looking forward to the opportunity to study the positive aspects as our society moves towards embracing a sustainable future.
