Cherie Westbrook



I'm Cherie, an ecohydrology professor in the Department of Geography and Planning at the University of Saskatchewan. I am also affiliated with the Centre for Hydrology and the Global Institute of Water Security.

I lead the Beaver Ecohydrology Lab. Our aim is to increase the understanding of how beaver ecosystem engineering can create “slow flow” environments critical for building climate resilience, reversing environmental degradation, and supporting biodiversity, and how climate change will affect this ability.  We use a combination of field work, computer modelling, remote sensing, and the occasional social science methodologies to develop new conceptual frameworks, tools, approaches, and models to support implementation of beaver as a natural climate, restoration, and biodiversity solution.
