Currently, Brady is working towards a Ph.D. in Rural Studies student at the University of Guelph. His research interests intersect between environmental stewardship, community development, and the inclusion of Indigenous knowledge in decision-making processes. As a settler scholar with mixed English/Mi’kmaw ancestry, Brady explores the roles and responsibilities of researchers engaging in community-based participatory research including self-reflection and critical thinking throughout the research process. 

Brady is currently serving as the Regional Studies Association Blog Editor. The RSA Blog provides a platform for researchers, students, practitioners, community members and industry leaders to share their expertise on regional issues from across the globe.

During his Master’s studies, Brady was also able to participate in a unique summer program called Students on Ice, in which he traveled to Northern Labrador with a group of Indigenous and non-Indigenous students to learn about climate change adaptation, ocean literacy, sustainable development goals and truth, and reconciliation. This expedition was featured in The Telegram, which is available here.
