Stephanie Sodero is a PhD Candidate in Sociology at Memorial University, St. John’s, Newfoundland. Following studies at Trent University (Bachelor of Environmental Studies 1999) and at Dalhousie University (Masters of Environmental Studies 2001), she was fortunate to work for five years with one of Nova Scotia’s most active environmental organizations, the Ecology Action Centre. With colleagues, she initiated a range of mobility-related projects, including the development of a comprehensive Green Mobility Strategy, the creation of university and employer transit pass programs, and the establishment of a community infrastructure fund. Stephanie went on to research carbon taxation at the University of Oxford (Masters of Geography 2010), and is now studying at Memorial University under the supervision of environmental sociologist Dr. Mark Stoddart.
An affiliated trainee with the On the Move Partnership, Stephanie’s PhD research explores the intersecting issues of climate change, mobility, and social-ecological resilience. She is conducting a comparative case study of two hurricanes that recently hit Nova Scotia and Newfoundland causing severe mobility disruptions, including work-related travel. Specifically, she asks: How do disruptions to mobility networks caused by hurricanes illuminate areas of social-ecological resilience and vulnerability?
