Student/postdoc Supervision

Clark Richards, PhD 200x.

Ramzi Mirshak, PhD 2008, Interfacial Internal Waves Impacting Sloped Boundaries.

Daniella Turk, PhD 1999, was a Killam-funded student cosupervised by Marlon Lewis, working on new production in equatorial regions.

Brian May, PhD 1999, was an NSERC- and Killam-funded student working on the dynamics and parameterization of double-diffusive interleaving in baroclinic fluids, with particular application to Arctic interleaving.

Marie-Claude Bourque, MSc 1994, applied data assimilative techniques to measure upwelling response in Jacques Cartier Strait. She has since moved to University of British Columbia, doing a PhD program, and then to the University of Rhode Island.

Peter Galbraith, PhD 1992, was an NSERC-funded student working on relating CTD overturns to mixing and buoyancy flux. Peter moved from Dalhousie to a postdoctoral position at McGill, and now works at IML, where he is a partner in the SLEIWEX research program.

Daniel Bourgault, an ONR/CFCAS/NSERC funded postdoctoral research associate, now at Memorial University of Newfoundland and a partner in the SLEIWEX research program.
