Amanda Loder and Ken Holyoke. 2017-18 Recipients of C. Naylor Fellowship

Amanda Loder and Ken Holyoke

Meet Nova Scotian Amanda Loder and Kenneth Holyoke, born and raised in New Brunswick. They are this year’s recipients of the C. David Naylor University Fellowship, which recognizes outstanding individuals from Atlantic Canadian provinces who are entering the first year of a full-time doctoral or doctoral-stream program. Congratulations and welcome, Amanda and Ken!

During her BSc and MSc research at Acadia University, Amanda Loder partnered and engaged with wetland managers from non-profit, industry and government agencies as she studied threats to wildlife habitat in the coastal Bay of Fundy region. At U of T, Amanda is looking forward to broadening her research focus, exploring the implications of climate change for coastal wetland ecosystems and management and their capacity to store carbon.

Kenneth Holyoke comes to U of T with a wealth of experience in his chosen field. After receiving a BA in Anthropology in 2008 and an MA in Anthropology in 2012 — both at the University of New Brunswick — he worked for five years as a professional archaeological consultant. In his doctoral studies, Ken plans to continue his research in the Lower Saint John River region of New Brunswick by exploring how ancient Wolastoqiyik understood and interacted with their landscape in prehistoric Northeastern North America.
