Future Feast at Mona


Dr Jennifer Lavers

Jenn (Métis Nation) coordinates Adrift Lab, where the research undertaken by our wonderful team focuses on traditional (Indigenous) knowledge, and using wild species, especially birds, as sentinels of physical and chemical pollution in the environment. Islands also feature at Adrift Lab, as remote areas can act as natural ‘controls’. Jennifer invests significant time in science communication, including feature roles in documentary films such as A Plastic Ocean, BLUE, and Drowning in Plastic.
