My TEDx talk, "Why our imaginations are the key to solving climate change," is about finding the courage to create a better future
Providing advice on how Canada can achieve net-zero emissions as part of the Net-Zero Advisory Body
Our research examines how climate change fuels extreme events, like marine heat waves, and the impacts on people and ecosystems
We look at how science can inform adaptation to climate change with a focus on Small Island Developing States like Kiribati
I am a climate scientist and Professor at the University of British Columbia focused on helping the world prevent and prepare for climate change.

I lead a diverse research program at the intersection of climate change science and policy. In order to address real-world problems, the areas of focus evolve over time and often cross disciplinary boundaries.
The team of students and researchers in my Climate and Coastal Ecosystem Laboratory (CCEL) study an array of interdisciplinary climate problems, from ocean warming to sea-level rise to the challenge of eliminating climate-warming emissions.
I have been working with local government and communities in the Republic of Kiribati since 2005 to understand the effects of climate change and to build research capacity. Papers, reports, and videos are available here, with more to come.
