Sam Metacat-yah, Dene Tha’ First Nation, 2022 intern

My I-Steam experience has been a crucial part for me to even consider a future career in graduate school. I worked under Dr. Maya Bhatia and Dr. Suzanne Tank on a Master’s student’s project with the Canadian Mountain Network studying glacier carbon impact to the biological community in glacial streams. I have finished my undergraduate degree in Environmental Science at Mount Royal University and am highly considering a Masters at University of Alberta or University of Calgary. Without the experience I had in I-Steam, I would have never thought of going to graduate school.
