Our small team gets a little bigger!

Welcome to Stephanne, our new program co-ordinator!

Evidence for Democracy is thrilled to welcome Stephanne Taylor as our new Program Co-ordinator! Stephanne comes to us fresh out of a PhD in physical oceanography from McGill University, and will be organizing research and communication projects for us. We're so excited to have her on board! You can get in touch with her about the March for Science, communications, and our research programs at stephanne@evidencefordemocracy.ca. 

Please join us in welcoming her!

Stephanne is organizing science policy, research, and communication initiatives for E4D.  She completed her PhD in physical oceanography at McGill University in 2016, where her research focused on ocean circulation and energetics. She has also published research in gravitational physics, applied physics, and Martian geochemistry, giving her a strong and varied background in physical sciences.  Aside from her academic research, she strives to make science accessible and exciting to non-scientists, with a particular focus on the intersection of science and politics.  She is a co-founder of Science Borealis, and has written about physics, environmental science, and Canadian politics for a range of organizations and publications.
