PhD Student Val Muzik researches on political communication, climate change, and the Arctic. Her policy paper on Russian policy on Arctic health issues has won an award at the US-Canada Science Diplomacy and Leadership Workshop and Model Arctic Council.

Arctic Council’s One Health initiative studies policy recommendations on the effects of climate change on circumpolar health. The Science Diplomacy and Arctic Council Program brought together 25 emerging American, Canadian, and European researchers and student leaders from different disciplines such as glaciology, microbiology, political science, and psychology. Emphasizing the importance of interdisciplinary, international, and intercultural dialogue to promote science and scientific knowledge, the workshop participants were trained to collaborate and negotiate through simulation focusing on issues of Arctic climate, health, and sustainability

Congratulations Val Muzik!!
