Research information:

My primary field of research deals with paleoclimatology and paleolimnology, i.e. the study of ancient climates and hydrological systems, and includes a strong modelling component. My research is primarily focused on the Holocene period and the last 1000 years. This historical approach allows to assess: (1) the timing and magnitude of past and recent changes in hydrological regimes; (2) the exceptional nature of recent climate and hydrological changes in a long term perspective; (3) the causes of hydroclimatic change; and (4) the vulnerability of hydrological systems to climate change.

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.

Research information:

My main field of research is applied Geomatics. Geomatics consists of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Remote Sensing (RS), Global Positioning systems(GPS), Spatial Analysis, Cartography, and Geodesy. Like information systems in general, geomatics is an enabling science that extends the IT model into the geographic realm with techniques and methods applicable to almost every conceivable discipline. For example, I currently have active projects in fields including: disaster mapping of tsunami devestated regions in the Bay of Bengal, health geography/epidimiology, wireless telecommunications, precision agriculture, and Quaternary climate change among others. Geomatics underlies our everyday activities as the science is used for both the planning and management of anything that exists in geographic space.
