Ashley Shaw

Hello! My name is Ashley Shaw, I’m a 24-year-old graduate student at the University of Saskatchewan. I’m in the School of Environment and Sustainability and I’m currently writing a thesis regarding the integration of Indigenous knowledge within Geographic Information Systems and its feasibility within Canadian forest management plans. 

I am a first generation Canadian. My parents are from Guyana, a small country in South America. I’ve traveled all over and I can speak 3 languages (but I swear I can understand around 7!). I’ve studied almost everything you can think of and I’ve recently published a research paper regarding parasites infecting crickets.

Also, I hate beets. Which is unfortunate because I currently reside within a non-profit Ukrainian hostel.

Thank you!
