MSc Candidate (co-supervised with M. Macrae)
Matt has a B.Sc. in Mathematics from the University of Winnipeg but hails originally from New Brunswick. Matt’s M.Sc. research examines the interactions between hydrology, biogeochemistry, and seasonal active layer development at a subarctic bog in Churchill, Manitoba. The objectives of Matt’s research are (1) to examine how the seasonal evolution of the frost table influences hydrologic and biogeochemical pathways for runoff generation, and (2) characterize the biogeochemical trajectory of ponds at two temporal scales (event-scale and seasonal-scale).
