My current research in the Arctic and Sub-Arctic

NSF NNA People Infrastructure Permafrost Resilience (PIPER) Project. Click here to explore this project. The goal of this NSF NNA project is to understand the complex interrelationships and mutual impacts of continued climate change in the Arctic among the following components: permafrost degradation and coastal erosion, civil infrastructure and development, and community well-being and sociodemographic and cultural resilience.

NSF NNA Arctic Urban Risks and Adaptations (AURA) project. Click here to explore this project. The goals of this project are to work with communities to assess the impact of wildfire, permafrost, and rain in winter hazards, how they've changed since 1980, and how they are projected to change up to 2060. 

NSF Accelnet The Permafrost Coastal Systems Network (PerCS-Net) . Click here to explore this project. The Permafrost Coastal Systems Network (PerCS-Net) will fill fundamental knowledge gaps associated with transforming permafrost coasts in the Arctic by linking over ten existing national and international networks. 

NSF  AON Permafrost Monitoring Network. Click here to explore monitoring locations and ground temperature (including real time) data from this project. This is a Pan-Arctic permafrost monitoring network with sites spanning Russia, Canada, and Alaska.
