Hi! I'm Selin.

I'm an insatiably curious reader/writer/researcher/explorer* asking questions about where climate change meets health**.

An expedition to Antarctica and a year spent working in an HIV virology lab inspired me to explore that intersection, and I believe that understanding the health impacts of climate change is important to our resilience as small communities and our sustainability as a large one. These days, I'm working on research and policy, making maps and models, and seeking at every step to build empathy and justice into and through my work.

I am based in Vancouver & Montreal. I study Immunology and Geography*** at McGill University.
