Gail Fraser

Associate Professor
Environmental Studies
York University
United States of America


My background is in marine and freshwater avian ecology. I have two main areas of research: environmental management of oil and gas extraction; and the ecology, conservationand management of avian wildlife. My research is entwined with my teaching; understanding how to critically examine environmental data requires knowledge of scientific thought and of ecology. My goal as a teacher is to provide intellectually challenging and stimulating courses while providing the skills to think critically on environmental issues.
