He's looking forward to exploring this focus in new areas and contexts with faculty at MACT, Extension, and elsewhere at the U of A. Rob has published several journal articles and book chapters, including collaborations with First Nations and Inuit community researchers. Through the First Mile Project, Rob facilitated the production of over 70 digital media stories showcasing Indigenous-led technology initiatives. He also has experience in regulatory and policy interventions.
Rob is excited about moving to Edmonton this summer. He grew up on a small island off the coast of Vancouver Island and has lived in Vancouver for the past decade, with time away in Philadelphia and Nagano, Japan. A big fan of live music, he covered the topic for Metro News for a few years while studying at Simon Fraser University. He loves hiking and camping and looks forward to exploring the river valley and the Rockies.
We’re looking forward to having Rob join the MACT team!
