IWCA series: Christine Noronha

Some children develop an interest at a young age that quickly grows into an obsession and, eventually, a career. For Christine Noronha, growing up in Pakistan, that interest just happened to be insects. Now an entomologist with AAFC, she has devoted her life to the study of entomology, and knows that the smallest pests can have the biggest impact on yields, livelihoods and the environment. Beyond the bugs, Noronha is also passionate about guiding other students, particularly young women and people new to Canada, through their journeys in academia.

Agriculture editor Bree Rody chats with Noronha in this episode of AgAnnex Talks as part of this year’s Influential Women in Canadian Agriculture program. IWCA is a program created by the agricultural brands at Annex Business Media designed to recognize women who make a difference in Canada’s ag industry and provide them with a platform to share their knowledge, triumphs and advice.
