Katie Kish is a postdoctoral fellow for the Economics for the Anthropocene project at McGill University and Vice-President Communications for the Canadian Society for Ecological Economics.

She also does extensive work in relation to experiential and long-view teaching such as founding the University of Waterloo Environmental Experiential Learning Group, held the position of Teaching and Learning Associate for the University of Waterloo’s Faculty of Environment, and founded an annual Environment Festival to showcase research and encourage hands-on learning throughout the Faculty. Katie is currently co-editing a book titled Freedom on a Finite Planet: Rethinking Liberty and the Politics of the Anthropocene and co-editing two special issues on a research agenda for Ecological Economics in the Journal of Sustainability and the Journal for Ecological Economics. When she can get away from her computer, Katie hikes with her dog, builds/colours/writes/sings/dances with her daughter, and cuddles with her newborn son.
