Imogen Fraser, Policy Analyst
Imogen is a skilled researcher and analyst in the areas of environmental policy and natural hazards management. Much of her work focuses on flood and drought management. She enjoys navigating complex management issues, which involve working with clients to understand the various human, natural, and institutional factors at play.
Imogen has several years of practical experience working at the interface of science and policy. Prior to joining Ebbwater, Imogen worked for the State Government of Victoria in Australia. There, she collaborated with scientists, regional practitioners, and policy-makers to develop and implement a risk-based approach to forest and fire management. She also gained operational experience as a forest firefighter.
Imogen is now immersed in water management policy in Canada. She is able to offer an international perspective regarding natural hazards management, which draws on her operational experience and expertise in risk analysis and public policy.
Imogen received her Bachelor of Science (Honours) in 2013 from the University of Melbourne, Australia. She majored in Environmental Science and completed her thesis on landscape flammability in an alpine environment.
