Research Interests

I am interested in the increased light availability under a thinning arctic ice cover due to climate change. My Ph.D. project is part of the NSERC-funded project called the Hudson Bay System Study (BAYSYS) where I will use an integrative research approach combining oceanographic methods to determine transmission of solar radiation in the ice-ocean system with biological methods to investigate the effects of greater light transmittance on polar primary productivity.
