Landscape evolution in Arctic permafrost regions

The high Arctic is set to experience climate change two to three times faster than the rest of the world. While the effects of this on ice-rich regions is well studied, how ice-free, permafrost, landscapes will change is still largely unexplored.
I aim to use numerical modelling and physical experiments, grounded in field observations, to better understand how seasonal changes affect the permafrost and water pathways in the Canadian high Arctic. I hope to use these insights to explore how such landscapes will evolve with a changing climate.
