Paul Hill's Lab Group
Paul Hill, Professor
Paul Hill is
Professor in the Oceanography Department at
Stephanie Kienast, Adjunct ProfessorStephanie Kienast is a former NSERC postdoctoral fellow and currently is an Adjunct Professor in the Department. Stephanie is a paleoceanographer who studies glacial-interglacial changes in the equatorial Pacific. Her research interests are at the interface between oceanography, geology, and chemistry and revolve around deciphering past climate and ocean change as recorded in marine sediments. Currently,Stephanie is focusing on a) changes in deep water flow as recorded in the grain size composition of sediments (postdoctoral work with Paul Hill) and b) accurate reconstructions of particle fluxes in the ocean using 230Thorium (with Roger François and Stephen Calvert, University of British Columbia).
John Newgard, Research AssistantJohn Newgard joined Paul's group in spring, 2008 to help out with some data processing and analysis. John received his MSc working with Alex Hay in the Department of Oceanography. John does not mind doing things other than working on data processing and analysis. To the left is a picture of him in a kayak flying off of a waterfall on the Folly River in Nova Scotia. If you look closely, I think you can see him smiling.
Laura DeGelleke, MSc CandidateLaura DeGelleke is investigating how sediment size distributions in the seabed can be used to infer properties of a large meltwater plume associated with Heinrich event 1A. She received her BSc from the University of Hawaii.
Jessica Carriere-Garwood, NSERC USRA and Honours StudentJessica is pursuing a Marine Biology/Oceanography combined Honours degree at Dalhousie. Her thesis topic is the effect of sediment texture and biological "glues" on erodibility of intertidal mud and sand flats. She has been working in the group since summer, 2009.
