Alyssa Hill is a research lead with PICS, and is grateful to be able to work, live and explore on the unceded traditional territory of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations (Vancouver).
She holds a Bachelor of Medical Sciences from Western University and a Masters of Climate Change from the University of Waterloo.
After graduating with her master’s degree, Hill worked with the Climate Risk Institute, researching climate change impacts and adaptation, developing awareness raising training and communication materials, and supporting large scale climate change risk assessments. She also founded and produced the Tiny Activist podcast.
Hill has collaborated with government representatives, non-profits, consultancies, and industries in Canada and internationally.
Experiences in Hill’s time as an undergraduate, including attending a conference at the United Nations, sparked her passion for climate change, climate justice, and equity. She hopes to continue learning (and unlearning) in the climate justice space as she supports climate resilience in B.C.
In her spare time, you may find Hill rock climbing, trying a new recipe, or planning her next adventure.
