About

Rhiannon is a researcher at the Ocean Wise Plastics Lab and is completing her Masters of Science at Simon Fraser University. Her research focuses on plastic pollution in Canada’s Arctic, where she is evaluating the amount of microplastic contamination in the beluga food web. In 2017 Rhiannon participated in an all-female sailing expedition (eXXpedition Caribbean) to raise awareness on plastic pollution, and later participated in the Canada C3 expedition as a scientist. In 2018, she was the recipient of the Garfield Weston Award for Northern Research, and named one of Canada’s top 30 under 30 sustainability leaders by Corporate Knights.

When not in the lab or the field, Rhiannon spends much of her time participating in outreach and education events to raise awareness about plastic pollution.

Rhiannon currently lives in Vancouver, British Columbia.
