About the Lab

  • I have designed my research program to address Federal priorities to conserve Arctic birds and the ecosystems on which they depend. Specifically, I lead multidisciplinary research programs to provide fundamental insights into the underlying processes of Arctic seabird ecology. These include foraging, reproduction, migration, winter distribution, and how seabirds are affected by changing climate and emerging diseases in the north. In addition, several projects focus on the harvest of some marine bird species by Aboriginal Peoples. These studies have been undertaken because of the importance of ensuring sustainable levels of harvest, as well as incorporating Aboriginal needs into conservation and management strategies of northern Canada and Greenland. Most studies are collaborative and multidisciplinary in nature; linking academia, Government, and aboriginal organizations.
