Core Faculty

Mackintosh-Corry Hall, Room E324

Planning for demographic and economic change; shrinking cities; economic decline; age-friendly communities; integrating play and fun into the urban landscape.

Mackintosh-Corry Hall, Room D124

Biogeochemistry of cold environments, Carbon and nutrient cycling in permafrost and alpine catchments, and Climate change and disturbance impacts on hydrology and water quality in permafrost watersheds.

Mackintosh-Corry Hall, Room D301

Renewable Energy Development and Implementation, Agricultural and forest bioenergy, Environmental and energy policy, and Renewable energy mapping.

Mackintosh-Corry Hall, Room D321

Local government reform, regional governance, urban-rural fringe, urban planning and development in China.

Mackintosh-Corry Hall, Room E109

I am interested in characterizing and understanding biogeochemical cycling in natural systems, especially the role of microorganisms in waters, soils, and sediments.  Due to observed and predicted increases in temperatures and hydrologic activity in the Arctic, this work helps us to understand how climate change will impact the terrestrial landscape of high latitude environments.

Mackintosh-Corry Hall, Room D304

Urbanization; Infrastructure; Informal Economies; Racialization; Gender; Postcolonialism; Decolonization; Social Reproduction; Neoliberalism; Public Security; Southern Cities; Mega Events; Health.

Mackintosh-Corry Hall, Room D132

Vegetation and landscape effects on nutrient cycling and greenhouse gas emissions from high-arctic ecosystems; land-use change effects on net (sources and sinks) greenhouse gas emissions; modeling of biogeochemical processes (e.g. carbon and nitrogen cycling) in terrestrial ecosystems; impacts of land-use history on contemporary ecosystem dynamics

Mackintosh-Corry Hall, Room E307

Arctic Canada, historical and political geography, youth research, land claims, Nunavut and Northwest Territories

Mackintosh-Corry Hall, Room D126

Surface-atmosphere interactions influenced by management and human-induced modification of ecosystems; trace gas exchanges; wetland ecosystems. 

Mackintosh-Corry Hall, Room D128

Active monitoring and prediction of northern landscape evolution using innovative geospatial, geophysical, and climate-coupled modelling techniques designed to identify and address current challenges facing the rapidly changing Arctic

Mackintosh-Corry Hall, Room D129

Cryosphere; Climate Change; Arctic; Subarctic; Permafrost; Glaciology; Adaptation; Communities.

(on leave from January 1, 2024 to June 30, 2024)

Mackintosh-Corry Hall, Room E320

Environment and sustainability, focused primarily on three interrelated themes: regional planning, monitoring and environmental assessment. Indigenous planning and management.
