Jacqueline Windh completed her B.Sc. (Honours) in Geology at McGill University in 1987, and began her Ph.D. in Geology at Macquarie University (Sydney, Australia) the same year. She completed her Ph.D. at the University of Western Australia in 1992. Windh then worked in the mining industry for nearly two decades, a field she left in order to try to have a more positive influence on the planet as a writer and photographer.
She has published four books (one of which is a Canadian bestseller), and has written articles for The Tyee, The Guardian and elsewhere. Her work mainly addresses the themes that are most important to her: sciences, scientific literacy, the environment, and indigenous social issues and rights. Windh is currently broadening her writing to address these same themes through fiction and writing for the big screen.
Reporting beat: Environment, science, and the outdoors.
