Stephanie Waterman leads the group and is an Associate Professor in the Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences and the Tier II Canada Research Chair in Ocean Turbulence. Her broad research interests are ocean physics and its implications for the ocean environment and the Earth's climate system. She teaches physical oceanography and climate science and is engaged in the EOAS Climate Emergency Response.
Stephanie has a B.A.Sc. in Engineering Physics from Queen's University, a M.Sc. in Aeronautics from the California Insitute of Technology, and a Ph.D. in Physical Oceanography from the MIT-Woods Hole Oceanography Institution Joint Program. She worked as a researcher at the National Oceanography Centre (UK), the Grantham Institute for Climate Change at Imperial College London (UK), and the Climate Change Research Centre at the University of New South Wales (Australia) before coming to the University of British Columbia in 2014.
Benjamin O'Connor is working on his M.Sc. in Physical Oceanography. He uses a variety of ocean observations to study ocean oxygen and carbonate system dynamics in coastal BC waters. His work is part of the MEOPAR project "Predicting physical and biogeochemical properties on the BC central coast" in close colloboration with the Hakai Institute.
Ben has a B.Sc. (Hon) in Geographical Sciences from UBC. He is a recipient of a Canada Graduate Scholarship - Master's (CGS-M), an Ocean Leaders fellowship, and the W.H. Mathews Scholarship. He is part of the inagural cohort of the Pacific Rim Ocean Data Mobilization and Technology (PRODIGY) graduate training program.
Claire Parrott is working on her M.Sc. in Physical Oceanography. She uses observations and ocean models to study freshwater processes in Jones Sound, NU with a particular focus on the role of marine-terminating glaciers. Her work is part of the Ice2Oceans project that aims to better understand the impacts of melting glaciers in the Canadian High Arctic, while also building a long-term, community-led monitoring program to better assess, understand and adapt to environmental change.
Claire has a B.Sc. (Hon) in Physics from the University of Waterloo. She is a recipient of a British Columbia Graduate Scholarship and part of the Pacific Rim Ocean Data Mobilization and Technology (PRODIGY) graduate training program.
Connor Henderson is working on his Ph.D. in Physical Oceanography at the University of New South Wales in Sydney Australia and is co-supervised there by Moninya Roughan and Shane Keating. Connor uses a hierachy of models to better understand eddy-mean flow interactions in jets that idealize western boundary currents in the Southern Hemisphere.
Connor has a B.Sc. (Hon) in Oceanography & Geophysics from the University of Alberta and a M.Sc. in Physical Oceanography from our group at UBC. He is a recipient of a Canada Graduate Scholarship - Master's (CGS-M), a British Columbia Graduate Scholarship, and a Robert Rutherford Rae Scholarship.
Khushboo Jhugroo is a postdoctoral research fellow at UBC working closely with the Hakai Institute and the Canadian-Pacific Robotic Ocean Observatory. She uses a diverse collection of in situ ocean observations including ocean glider, mooring and ship-based data to study the dynamics of the continental shelf off the coast of British Columbia Canada.
Khushboo has a B.Sc. in Physical Oceanography and a M.Sc. in Ocean & Climate Dynamics both from the University of Cape Town and a Ph.D. in Physical Oceanography from the University of Auckland and the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research, New Zealand. She is supported by a Hakai Coastal Initiative Postdoctoral Fellowship.
Hayley Dosser is an alumni of the research group and now is appointed as a Physical Scientist at Fisheries and Oceans Canada. She is a technical lead for the glider program of the Canadian-Pacific Robotic Ocean Observatory
