Paul Sokoloff
Scientist

Paul Sokoloff is a botanist at the Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa. Born in Newfoundland, due to his roving family he counts himself a previous resident of Indonesia, Vietnam, northern B.C., central Alberta, and rural Nova Scotia. Perhaps inspired by this nomadic upbringing, or many years spent gallivanting around Alberta with Scouts Canada, Paul has sought adventure in work and life. Following a trip to Victoria Island in Canada’s Western Arctic in 2010, Paul seeks any opportunity he can to get back to Nunavut and the Northwest Territories, and is now a veteran of six Arctic expeditions. ​
