Environmental impact assessment; natural resources management; energy systems and resources, the Canadian west, north and Arctic.
Courses & Teaching
Environmental impact assessment regulation and processes; energy systems and resources.
Kevin Hanna’s research broadly centres on integrated approaches to natural resources management, operational support for natural resources development, environmental impact assessment, and energy resources and systems. A key part of his research is working with Indigenous organizations to help outline data/information management approaches and tools, define best practices for impact assessment, and develop case studies to help communities design new methods for conducting impact assessments. His current work focuses on the Canadian west, and north and Arctic.
