Alice Cohen receives awards
Environmental Science professor Dr. Alice Cohen received significant awards and funding this summer. She was awarded an $11,000 Harrison McCain emerging scholar award for her project “Understanding the Role of Technology in Community Based Monitoring”. This funding will be used to investigate the success of open-access platforms for sharing information about freshwater health in both the Atlantic Region and the Northwest Territories by conducting interviews with policy-makers in both regions. The datastream for the NWT project can be viewed on the Gordon Foundation webpage.
Alice was also recognised as one of the 2018 recipients of the Faculty of Pure and Applied Science Emerging Scholar award for her work on several water-monitoring policy applications.
