In the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Mount Royal University in Calgary, Alberta, Lynn teaches digital mapping and geomorphology (landforms and processes) particularly of glaciated terrain. Her research focusses on geographical technologies (Digital Earth, GIS) and how people can learn, and use, these technologies most effectively to better understand the environment. Her current work includes supporting Inuit communities in connecting local knowledge to satellite imagery and providing technology support and training to sea-ice mapping initiatives.
Lynn is an enthusiastic, award-winning educator who enjoys connecting people to the land and environment. Her participatory approach welcomes everyone to learn about and share their experiences of the exceptionally beautiful landscapes we are fortunate to travel through. When not on board or in the classroom, Lynn can often be found travelling the world in pursuit of more geographic knowledge or trying to catch up to her three sons!
