Meet the 2015 CGRG / GCRG Executive.
Chris HugenholtzChris Hugenholtz is an Associate Professor and Research Chair in the Department of Geography, University of Calgary. His research focuses on aeolian processes and landscape dynamics, UAVs for mapping, dust emissions, and planetary geomorphology.
Ian WalkerIan Walker is a Professor in the Department of Geography, University of Victoria. His research focuses on beach and dune morphodynamics, coastal erosion, aeolian processes, dune restoration, climatic variability impacts in the coastal zone, and Holocene coastal landscape and relative sea-level reconstructions.
Nicole CoutureNicole 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.
Jacklyn (Jackie) CockburnJaclyn (Jackie) Cockburn is an assistant professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Guelph. Her research focuses on sediment cascades within changing watersheds.
Michele KoppesMichele 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
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.
Anna Marie Megens
Anna Marie Megens is a PhD candidate in the Department of Geography, University of Toronto. Her research focuses on fluvial processes and Holocene landscape development in glaciated environments.
