Adjunct Professor (Laval University)
Tiff-Annie is interested in human dependency on biodiversity for nutrition and food security. Her research employs participatory and systems-based methodologies to examine the links between marine environments and human health, with a particular focus on the ecological, environmental, and economic dimensions of Indigenous Peoples food systems. Tiff-Annie holds a B.Eng. and an MSc. (Applied) in Biosystems Engineering from McGill University, and a PhD in Biology from the University of Ottawa.
