Meet the 2017 CGRG / GCRG Executive.
Nicole Couture is a coastal permafrost scientist with NRCan’s Geological Survey of Canada where her interests include the response of permafrost landscapes to development activities and changing environmental conditions, and the influence of coastal processes on nearshore and onshore permafrost.
Jan Franssen is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography at the Université de Montréal where he teaches courses in geomorphology, hydrology, and river system science. His research focus is a the interface of geomorphology, watershed hydrology, and ecology where he seeks to characterize the physical processes that sustain ecological functions in freshwater ecosystems.
Christina Neudorf is a Research Scientist and Manager of the Luminescence Dating Laboratory at the Desert Research Institute, Reno, Nevada. Her research focuses on the development of luminescence dating techniques and their application in geomorphology, geoarchaeology and Quaternary geology.
Michele Koppes is an Assistant Professor and Canada Research Chair in the Department of Geography, University of British Columbia. Her research looks at the effects of climate variability on glaciers, ice sheets and mountain landscapes, by integrating field data collection, spatial analysis, numerical modeling and theoretical development of cryospheric processes and landscape change.
Pascale Biron, Dan Shugar, Paul Villard
Pascale Biron is a Professor in the Department of Geography, Planning and Environment, Concordia University. Her research focuses on fluvial geomorphology, river restoration for fish habitat, GIS and numerical modelling of river dynamics and agricultural watershed management.
Dan Shugar is an Assistant Professor and leader of the waterSHEDlab (Water, Sediment, Hazards and Earth-surface Dynamics) in the School of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences at the University of Washington Tacoma. His research interests involve glacial, fluvial, alpine and coastal geomorphology, natural hazards, and geomatics.
Paul Villard is the director/geomorphologist at GEO Morphix, ltd, Milton, Ontario. His research interests are river and shoreline restoration, erosion hazard delineation and mitigation.
