Silke Nebel, PH.D.
Vice-President, Conservation and Science
I oversee Birds Canada’s bird monitoring and conservation programs across the country. Prior to joining Birds Canada in 2018, I ran a science communication business and worked as a research grant writer at Western University. Before moving to London, Ontario, I worked out of research institutes in Canada, Panama, the Netherlands, and Australia. I hold a Ph.D. in Biology and have published over 30 peer-reviewed papers on my research, mainly on ecology of migratory birds. I have been involved with the Canadian Science Policy Conference since 2015, and have served on the Advisory Board of the London Institute for Public Policy and as the Chair of the Middlesex-London Food Policy Council.
