Her works produced with NAADSN include: “Geoengineering in the Canadian Arctic: Governance Challenges”; “The Impacts of Climate Change on North American Defence and Security” (with Jayde Lavoie, Carly MacArthur, and Maria Nallim); “Improving the Canadian Armed Forces’ Recruitment and Retention of Indigenous People: Best Practices from the New Zealand Defence Force” (with Jayde Lavoie); and “Climate Change, Security, & Military Preparedness in North America” (with Jayde Lavoie, Carly MacArthur, and Maria Nallim).
