Julianne Yip is a sociocultural anthropologist trained at McGill University in Montreal. Her interest in more-than-human worlds led her to Arctic sea ice and the scientists who study it. She became interested in technological approaches to tackling environmental problems as a 2019–2020 Berggruen Institute research fellow in the Transformations of the Human program.

Geoengineering plans to save Arctic ice tend to treat technology as a means for asserting human control over the environment. Instead, we should develop human-nonhuman partnerships to tackle climate change.
