Noelle is a PhD candidate at University of Toronto with the Department of Physical and Environmental Sciences, and the School of the Environment. Their research is situated at the interface of science and policy, with a particular focus on North American freshwater fishes. Their current research explores the ways in which stakeholders learn about aquatic invasive species (AIS) and how their perceptions of AIS risks affect their willingness to cooperate with management efforts. Early detection and rapid response relies on widespread stakeholder participation, and Noelle is working to develop frameworks to inform policy-makers and managers how to better coordinate with stakeholders on this issue. They are also keenly interested in at-risk species management. They have recently co-authored a paper assessing the influence of Recovery Potential Assessments on formal listing decisions for at-risk freshwater fishes under the Species at Risk Act.
