Research information:

I am an expert on the effects of climate warming on polar regions, especially on permafrost, the landscape, and northerners. I currently work in the Yukon and the Canadian High Arctic on subjects such as measuring recent changes in permafrost temperatures, predicting current permafrost distribution and rates of thaw, and landsliding. This research is relevant to hazard prediction and the development of roads and pipelines, as well as adaptation to climate change in the North. I am currently Senior Vice-President of the International Permafrost Association and will become President in 2012.
