Ian Mauro is a Canada Research Chair in "human dimensions of environmental change" at Mount Allison University, in New Brunswick. Effective January 2014, Dr. Mauro will join the University of Winnipeg. He is both a researcher and filmmaker, with degrees in Environmental Science and Geography, and his work focuses on hunter, farmer and fisher knowledge regarding environmental change, specifically issues related to food security, global warming and industrial development. As part of his doctorate, he co-directed "Seeds of Change" (www.seedsofchangefilm.org), a highly controversial film that focused on farmer experience regarding agbiotechnology in Canada. The film has been viewed over 1.5 million times online and is used by universities around the world. For his postdoctorate, Mauro teamed up with Zacharias Kunuk and Igloolik Isuma Productions to develop "Qapirangajuq: Inuit Knowledge and Climate Change", the world's first Inuktitut language film on the topic. The film is available for free on our website (www.isuma.tv/ikcc). In Atlantic Canada, Mauro led one of the largest climate change adaptation studies ever conducted in the region, and his team interviewed over 100 stakeholders and produced the film "Climate Change in Atlantic Canada" (www.climatechangeatlantic.com). Mauro continues to collaborate with IsumaTV and, in the summer of 2012, he traveled with Zacharias Kunuk and elders throughout Foxe Basin and Steensby Inlet to document Inuit knowledge regarding mining and industrial development using a new generation of GPS-enabled video cameras. They are currently working on the "Our Baffin Atlas", a spatial digital media and research project, which is soon to be released. Ian can be contacted through email at firstname.lastname@example.org
