Thinking fast and slow about permafrost in high-mountain areas
Dr. Stephan Gruber (Carleton University)
Stephan’s research focuses on permafrost and related phenomena in high-latitude and high-elevation environments. He aims to better anticipate and quantify the impacts that local human activity and global climate change have on geohazards and natural systems. His interest in novel predictive methods and tools is reflected in projects that bridge fundamental and applied research. Stephan holds the Canada Research Chair in Climate Change Impacts/Adaptation in Northern Canada at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada and currently works as a lead author on the chapter for high-mountain areas in the IPCC Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate.
