Catherine-Alexandra Gagnon possède une expertise dans le travail collaboratif en milieux autochtones. Elle s’intéresse particulièrement à la mise en commun des savoirs locaux, autochtones et scientifiques. Elle détient un doctorat en Sciences de l’environnement et une maîtrise en Gestion de la faune de l’Université du Québec à Rimouski, un baccalauréat en biologie faunique de l’université McGill ainsi qu’un certificat en Études autochtones de l’université de Montréal. Durant ses études, elle a travaillé sur les connaissances locales et ancestrales des Aîné(e)s et chasseurs Inuit, Inuvialuit et Gwich’in du Nunavut, des Territoires du Nord-Ouest et du Yukon.
