Attending the World Conference on Drowning Prevention in 2017 as an Emerging Leader, the IDRA Emerging Researchers workshop piqued an interest in drowning research for Riley. His research interests involve studying community drowning prevention strategies for British Columbia’s vast waterways, lakes, rivers and coast. Outside of research, Riley demonstrates his commitment to supporting the Lifesaving Society’s mission and vision by writing, producing, and being a technical expert on a number of projects.
