Jennifer Lipka

I am a 2nd year M.Sc. student in Integrated Studies in Land and Food Systems at the lab. My undergrad is a B.A. in Geography majoring in Environment and Sustainability. My academic interests are biogeography, GIS, and pollinators! In the summer of 2019, I received an NSERC URSA to conduct collaborative research with the PIEE and PCIGR to study how trace metal pollution is distributed across bumble bee populations in the lower mainland. I am interested in researching the relationships between plants and pollinators and how they are affected by environmental pollution, climate, and land use change. My favourite activities are gardening, snowboarding and eating chocolate!
