Hi everyone, my name is Hameet and I am one of the Knowledge Gatherers at CPCIL. I am based in the GTA, near the Great Lakes and love exploring the trails found along the Niagara Escarpment. I have a Master of Environmental Studies from the University of Waterloo and my thesis focused primarily on marine protected areas (MPAs), social-ecological change and community wellbeing. My interest in MPAs continued during my time at CPCIL where I had the opportunity to research and develop articles related to this topic. I also explored the cohesion between conservation and ecological economics. I hope to further my knowledge of parks and protected areas during the research summit, get updates on up-and-coming research and network with others in this field.
