Dr. Teresa Ryan

Postdoctoral Teaching and Research Fellow, Department of Forest and Conservation Sciences

Dr. Teresa Ryan’s research is motivated by her Aboriginal Tsimshian heritage and the guidance provided by her Grandfather to become a fisheries scientist. For her dissertation, Dr. Ryan examined colonial dispossession of Aboriginal lands and trade. Her current research investigates salmon fishing technology and strategies that were used to increase abundance and maintain salmon biological diversity while contributing marine-derived nitrogen to healthy coastal forests.
