Juliette Colinas has a life-long interest in environmental issues. This led her to first study Biochemistry at McGill University in Montreal. Meanwhile she discovered Genomics, and pursed a doctorate in that field, which she completed in 2006 at Duke University in Durham, USA. This experience made her curious about the social and historical underpinnings of the scientific process, and brought her back to her initial interest in environmental issues, but this time from a social perspective.
After spending some time working as a helper on organic farms and studying Philosophy, she turned to Environmental Sociology, and completed an MSc in Environment at McGill University in 2016. See here for more information, and here for a list of publications.
