Pascale became a member of the Cooperative Freshwater Ecology Unit at Laurentian University in March 2016. She received the infamous co-op ball cap at the Annual General Meeting, on April 12th, 2016, at the Vale Living with Lakes Centre.
The Cooperative Freshwater Ecology Unit was founded in 1989 as a partnership between Laurentian University and the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources (OMNR) and the Ministry of the Environment (MOE) to help address applied environmental research questions related to environmental restoration and management. Its partners include researchers from several universities, industry, and the City of Sudbury.
Pascale looks forward to new collaborations with members of the Co-op to develop research projects focused on interactions between permafrost and freshwater in Ontario’s North. Discussions are on-going regarding the development of projects focused on permafrost conditions and vulnerability in the Hudson Bay Lowlands.
