Amanda Loder is a graduate student at the University of Toronto in the Paleoecology Laboratory, and studies carbon stores in marsh soils and their role in the global carbon cycle and moderating the climate. She also examines how land-use and climate change have affected carbon stores in marshes in the past as a means to understand how carbon stores will be affected in the future. Amanda has a great interest in understanding and applying science-based evidence in environmental management, and enjoys partnering and engaging with wetland conservationists.
Outside of research, Amanda has a wide range of interests, including science education, piano, being physically active and environmental sustainability. Amanda also enjoys spending time at her grandmother’s cottage in Nova Scotia and her family’s cabin in Newfoundland.
