Dr. Dalal Hanna (she/her) is a conservation and landscape ecologist who is passionate about researching environmental challenges to try and foster a more equitable and sustainable future.
She completed a PhD in Natural Resources Sciences at McGill University in 2020, and is currently a postdoctoral fellow at Carleton University where she conducts research related to freshwater ecosystem conservation. She is interested in using her research findings to inform landscape-scale conservation policy.
When Dalal is not busy not asking scientific questions about the environment, she’s usually exploring it. She has hiked the Fagarash mountains in Romania, biked around Gaspésie in Canada, dived through caverns in Mexico, ridden camels in the Sinai desert, paddled 7000km across Canada to raise funds and awareness for watershed conservation, and worked as a science educator on rafting and canoeing expeditions. Riparia is her ideal vehicle to combine and share her passions for science, education and outdoor activities with the next generation of water protectors.
