Dr. Chris Omelon
, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor, Department of Geography and Planning
Bio: The goal of my research is to understand biogeochemical dynamics in aquatic and terrestrial habitats. Using a combination of field-based measurements and analytical techniques, my current research uses a polyphasic approach to characterize and predict the impact of climate warming on the Arctic landscape, including both surface and subsurface settings.

Cedelle Pereira, 
B.Sc. (Hons)
M.Sc. Candidate, Department of Geography and Planning
Bio: My research focuses on understanding how landscape characteristics, permafrost disturbances, and hydrological processes control the transformation and transport of dissolved organic and dissolved inorganic carbon in High Arctic headwater streams.

Theresa Gossmann,
B.Sc.
M.Sc. Candidate, Department of Geography and Planning
Bio: My research looks at the different vegetation communities in the High Arctic and how they will evolve with a changing climate. As flora is key to absorb atmospheric CO2, I’m researching if northern vegetation communities act as carbon sinks or sources to our planet.

Maddie Myers,
M.Sc.
Ph.D. Candidate, Department of Geography and Planning
Bio: My research seeks to understand the glacier response to climate change in High Arctic Canada. As weather patterns change, how and when does that impact the spatiality of glacier melt production and flux to Arctic watersheds and the Arctic Ocean?
