News / CAUT announces 2021 J. H. Stewart Reid Memorial Fellowship

Andréanne Lavoie is this year’s recipient of CAUT’s J. H. Stewart Reid Memorial Fellowship, an award established to honour the memory of the Association’s first Executive Secretary, and which comes with a $5000 scholarship.

Lavoie is pursuing a PhD degree in plant biology at Université Laval and is also a recipient of the Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarships. She is interested in the impacts of agroforestry systems on the conservation of agrobiodiversity, safeguarding the knowledge and know-how of farmers who protect this agrobiodiversity, and the general concept of biocultural diversity.

Part of the Biodiversity, Ecosystem Services and Sustainability collaboration between McGill University, Université Laval, Université du Québec à Montréal, and other Latin American institutions, Lavoie’s thesis research project focuses on the conservation of cacao intraspecific diversity in the Convención province of Peru.
