Dany Dumont
Institut des sciences de la mer de Rimouski

Dany Dumont obtained his B.Sc. (2000) and M.Sc. (2002) degrees in physics from Université Laval, in Québec, after which he worked for three years as a junior researcher at Photintech, a company developing and manufacturing liquid-crystal based photonic devices for telecommunications. During this period, he co-authored six patents. In 2004, he began his PhD in physical oceanography at Institut National de Recherche Scientifique, Centre Eau, Terre et Environnement (INRS-ETE), and obtained his degree in 2010. From 2005 to 2007, he was actively involved in the ArcticNet Student Association (ASA), first as a member of the foundation working group, then as communications officer, and as president. In 2009-2010, he did his postdoc at the Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center (NERSC) in Bergen, Norway, developing wave-ice coupled models for the marginal ice zone in suport of operational ocean forecasting. In 2011, he became a professor of physical oceanography at Institut des sciences de la mer, in Rimouski. His research focuses on numerical modeling of polar and subpolar marine environments, with particular interests for ice-ocean and wave-ice coupled processes and their implications on ecosystems and marine forecasts.
