Christine Leclerc is an undergraduate in Physical Geography at Simon Fraser University and an NSERC-USRA award recipient. She has received support from SFU’s Faculty of Environment and the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions to train overseas in the area of climate policy. In 2019, Leclerc attended UN Climate Change’s COP25 event to help advance climate literacy. In 2020, Leclerc was selected to present on the reversibility of climate change at the SFU Undergrad Research Symposium. She is interested in earth system response to climate forcing and tools to improve policy-maker ability to protect long-term environmental resource availability. As part of Dr. Hahm’s hydrology lab, Leclerc co-investigates controls on surface flow and stream network response to change in precipitation regime.

Sijin is an undergraduate environmental science student at Simon Fraser University. As an honours student, she is working with Jesse to investigate the relationship between subsurface water storage and plant productivity. She also developed field sampling and laboratory analysis skills by working at a research centre under Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada. Her research interests lie in exploring how computing techniques such as Google Earth Engine and Python can be applied in geology and environmental science.
