 Mr. Ehsan Pashanejad | spatial analysis | Young Scientist Award

 Mr. The University of British Columbia Okanagan, Canada

👩‍🔬 As part of the NSERCResNet strategic network, I am immersed in modeling the intricate interactions among multiple ecosystem services across the Canadian Prairies for my PhD program. My MSc research delved into various aspects of ecosystem change impacts, vulnerability, community resilience, and the interactions between human and natural systems. I’ve conducted hydrological ecosystem service mapping for local climate change adaptation and mitigation planning in the Comox Valley, Vancouver Island, as part of the UBC sustainability scholar program. Proficient in mapping and modeling ecosystem services, environmental complexities, and geospatial analysis, I’ve contributed to strategic spatial planning and decision-making processes on both small and large scales in Iran and Canada. Moreover, I’ve collaborated with federal government agencies like Parks Canada, where I conducted climate change vulnerability assessments for species at risk in Wood Buffalo National Park.
