Assistant Professor, Dalhousie University

I am an Assistant Professor of Physical Oceanography in the Department of Oceanography, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. My research interests involve ocean and climate variability across a range of time and space scales including extreme events (marine heatwaves, storms), the predictability of climate variations, the influence of modes of variability (such as the Madden-Julian Oscillation) on the ocean, and the role of climate change on the mean state, variability and extremes of the climate system. In addition, I am of Inuit descent with roots in Nunatsiavut (northern Labrador) and I aim to contribute to northern and indigenous communities through my research and teaching.
