Research Interests

My primary research focuses on the physical controls of habitat 

selection of Arctic marine mammals (i.e. polar bears, ringed seals, 

whales).  I use remote sensing technologies (namely EM Induction 

system and various satellite imagery) and geographic information 

systems to study the Arctic environment.  I am also interested in 

investigating snow distribution over sea ice at various scales and 

developing modeling techniques to estimate the distribution using 

meteorological inputs.  Underlying my current research activities is 

the understanding of climate change impacts on the Arctic marine 

system (both physical and biological).
