Ariane is a dietitian and a master's student. She is examining the relationship between type 2 diabetes and diet quality among First Nations people living on reserve in Canada, using data from the FNFNES project. She is also helping to coordinate the project on fisheries and food security for First Nations in British Columbia under climate change. During her undergraduate degree, Ariane completed an introductory research internship with CIENS, which focused on the A3PN project in Haiti. This experience confirmed her interests in food systems, nutrition transition and food security, as well as her desire to further study these topics in graduate school. As a health professional, Ariane is motivated by health equity, social justice and the environment. Along the way, she received two awards from the Department of Nutrition at the Université de Montréal; first for her leadership and involvement at the undergraduate level (2019), and second at the graduate research day (2021). Outside of her academic pursuits, Ariane enjoys taking time to cook, listen to podcasts, play outdoor sports, and make art.
