Being a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.


Q: Why did you begin your work with snowpack modelling in the Northwest Territories?

A: This is a love story. I was in England studying remote sensing and land surface modelling. I was working on satellite imaging to improve irrigation, when I received an email from the Université de Sherbrooke to ask if I wanted to work on snow modelling. I went to do the work and surprisingly I found that I love snow. While snowshoeing near the university in snow, through the forest, I decided: "That’s it, I’m going to work in snow."
