Rachel Parent first had a career focused on the visual arts, then her passion for the conservation of biodiversity and ecology prompted her to complete a bachelor’s degree in biological sciences at the University of Montreal. She then developed an interest in plant biology during an internship on phytotechnologies.
She is currently pursuing her master’s studies in plant biology at the plant biology research institute (IRBV) of the University of Montreal. In parallel with her master’s degree, she completed a two-year internship at T2 Environnement as part of a project to restore the banks of a stream located in Otterburn Park, in Montérégie. The objective of this research project is to select plant species and implantation methods adapted to root growth in clay soils, in order to improve revegetation techniques and allow soils and riparian ecosystems to regenerate.
She wishes to contribute to future ecological restoration projects using the results of her research project. In addition, her collaborations on various T2 projects allow her to develop and improve her knowledge in the field, particularly with regard to the identification of plants.
