“I completed my undergraduate degree (biology) at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay before moving to Ottawa where I did my MSc (geography) at Carleton University and am now enrolled in the Geography PhD program. I enjoy running and hiking and trained for many years for cross-country ski racing.
My graduate research pertains to large, tabular icebergs (‘ice islands’) which calve from the ice shelves and floating glacial tongues of the Canadian High Arctic and northwestern Greenland, respectively. I am interested in how ice islands deteriorate as they drift south into regions of present and anticipated industrial activities, such as shipping and natural resource extraction. The Water and Ice Research lab, of which I am involved with, works closely with the Canadian Ice Service and ArcticNet for research planning and field work logistics.”
