Stéphanie holds a diploma in Physical Geography from UQAM and has completed graduate studies in the field of water science at the Eau Terre Environnement (Water Earth Environment) Research Centre of the Institut national de la recherche scientifique in Quebec City. A member of the Centre for Northern Studies (CEN), she has developed environmental expertise by analyzing hydroclimatic parameters that influence cryosphere components (river and sea ice, snow).
Thanks to her university studies, she has explored the province's Arctic, sub-Arctic and even circumpolar ecosystems. For her master's thesis, she worked very closely with Inuit communities, exchanging scientific and Aboriginal traditional knowledge about the land. The thesis is entitled, "A study of ice behaviour in the sub-Arctic macrotidal environment of the Koksoak River estuary, Nunavik." Her fields of interest are the impacts of climate change (human and natural) on the tourism industry, hydrology, satellite image mapping (RADARSAT 2) and the cumulative impacts of mining in Nunavik, Quebec.
