After receiving his B.Sc in Earth and Ocean Sciences from the University of Victoria, Gavin migrated east to attend Dalhousie University from which he earned his M.Sc in coastal geomorphology in 1999. Since 2000 he has been employed as a coastal geoscientist with the Geological Survey of Canada at the Bedford Institute of Oceanography. His primary research interests are in coastal processes, storm surge flooding hazards, and the coastal impacts of changing climate. Gavin has contributed to several projects investigating coastal climate change impacts and adaptation in Canada including the western Arctic, Prince Edward Island, southeast New Brunswick, and the Queen Charlotte Islands and is currently involved in similar projects in Nunavut and Halifax. Gavin is also currently undertaking Ph.D research at the University of Guelph investigating approaches to the modelling coastal change and evolution under changing climate on the north shore of Prince Edward Island.
