(Biography) I have completed my PhD in Arctic oceanography at Laval University in December 2008. My PhD project was on the physical and biological forcing of vertical carbon fluxes in southern Beaufort Sea. In 2009, I moved to Tromso (Norway) for a postdoctoral fellowship within the Arctos Marine Research Network. I am now back in Canada where I continue my postdoctoral research on biogenic particle fluxes and plankton ecology in pan-Arctic seas. My main work is related to the long-term monitoring of physical and biogeochemical changes in Canadian Arctic waters as part of the ArcticNet Moored Marine Observatory Program.
